Let’s paint a picture. It’s early in the second period and your team is playing like shit. You’ve ran out of beer, you’re already irritable and on comes the commercials. As if life can’t get any worse? You’re wrong. Enter the top 5 worst commercials you might see when watching a hockey game.
So Geico really dropped the ball and I’ll tell you why. Nicklas Backstrom is an incredible hockey player, there is no disputing that. However, you’re telling me Alex Ovechkin commercials wouldn’t be infinitely better? Just ripping pucks, drunk off the Stanley cup parties is better than a Backstrom smirk. Alex Ovechkin in a lifeguards chair instead of Braden Holtby? Yes please.
I legit stopped drinking gatorade after watching this. Reaaaal cringe worthy type stuff. Haven’t seen this commercial around too much recently, maybe because every one feels this way?
Any of the Discover Card Commercials
We get it NHL, you love Discover card. But how about we dial back the amount of times we see this per viewing. I don’t need to hear “Its cash back match people!!” Good god, settle down. Also, who in their right mind would get that hair cut?
Kars 4 Kids
This commercial is directed towards Rangers fans. If you’re a Rangers fan and watch the blue shirts on MSG there is a 1000% chance that you’ve seen this commercial and had this jingle stuck in your head for the next 3 days. This year we’ve been decently lucky in regards to not seeing it as much but the damage has already done. Whoever thought of this is brilliant. Why? Because even though this commercial is brutal, you will always remember it.
Like the Kars 4 Kids, this jingle makes my head want to explode. If you get the NHL network, you know what I’m talking about. One of the funnier parts of this is the fact that Farmers Only thinks the super hockey fan would be visiting this website. Are they wrong? Do you want to find ourselves a country girl and not a city slicker? Let me know.
Did I miss any commercials you can’t stand? Let us know.
