Having a celebrity endorser sometimes is a good idea for a commercial HOWEVER, this season with no NHL on the tube I think the timing of using an NHLer like Tie Domi in a commercial is questionable........there are alot of people frustrated at these NHL players and owners and I being one of them..........When there่s NHL hockey to watch Domi might be a very popular individual......Im just not so certain that the guy is as popular during the NHL Lockout.

Cheers!

1. Stop using that God damn font. Please.
2. I understand that you're an actor and do work in commercials. Therefore your stance on this situation is a bit skewed. The fact is that Domi isn't stealing someone's job because it was his job in the first place. Celebrity endorsers are a part of advertising and so that job was his before and after the lockout.
3. Domi is too much of a fan favourite in Toronto, and Grapes is a hero to the average Canadian. Lock out or not these two guys are going to drive the message home easier and better than your average joe actor would.
