Ad executive: "Yeah, except the groundbreaking twist will be Granlund picking a rugged, biker-looking guy instead of two pageant queens. Then he'll be like 'uh oh!'"

I bet that's almost verbatim of how the pitch went.
Don't know if you knew it, but the rugged, biker-looking guy is a former NHL defenseman Jere Karalahti. The ad is also filled with Finnish hockey people, but what's the point in it? I have no idea.

EDIT: Oh, heksagon was faster than me.
