KHL Goalie Does a Backflip in Full Pads for Crazy Ad

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffJanuary 27, 2014

We recently saw that learning to maneuver in goalie pads is no easy task, and this advertisement for KHL's SKA Saint Petersburg hockey team has goalie Ilya Ezhov pulling off a far more impressive move than any other netminder can make in pads. 

Yes, the ad is just as real as this Jamaal Charles Puma ad or these Powerade ads starring LeBron James and Michael Vick, but it still looks incredible. 

Hat tip to HockeyWebCast and Tom Ley of Deadspin for the video.
