Commercials on TSN you have grown to hate

If you love hockey there is no better place to live than Canada... "All Hockey, All The Time". The unfortunate part... the same commercials rear their ugly head over and over again during the games. Sort of like my posts.

So... Commercials we have seen on TSN during the WJR's, ad nauseum, and grown to HATE:

1) Pepsi commercial featuring Snoop Dog - it did not last past the first couple games so I can't be the only one who hated it. Still beats that stupid Pepsi chant from a few years back.

2) CP Commercial - The first time you see it is touching. The next time, not so much. By the 5th time it has become sentimental crap.

Also... half way thru the Commercial the boy running with the train and has bright blue eyes. At the end of the commercial, "10 Years Later", he is played by someone with brown eyes. Ah, Canadian TV... HBO is aint.

3) RIM commercial with the glowing bikes - Cool! Just makes me sad to think of what happened to that great Canadian company in ONE year.

4) Pepsi Job Interview Commercial - Does not grow old. For the record, those guys stole those dance moves from me!!!

5) Nike Team Canada commercial in the Tunnel - Never grows old. Love it!!! I try and time a "BAM" when they hit the ice at the end.

That Pepsi Max commerical is OLD!! Was it from the Super Bowl and just not aired up here until now? Love it either way.

The CP commercial just annoys me now. Quit looking like a ****** and just shake your brothers hand!

My bad, missed the Snoop Dogg part. Saw "Pepsi Max" and assumed you were talking about the Job Interview.

Yeah, the Snoop commercial is lame.

I don't really understand the CP commercial. Is there friction between the two brothers because one left the farm to become a railroad engineer? Also, what is the point of the commercial, what are they trying to sell?

Pepsi Job Interview. The idea was cool, but the screaming gets ****ing annoying after a few times. MUTE!

The one I really love though is Nike's Pressure Is Power. That doesn't get old.

Yeah, I agree. My brother went off to be a teacher. Should I resent him too?

Yeah I don't get the CP commercial at all. I ****ing love the Pepsi one though and I'm not sure why.

The worst ones are during the NHL playoffs. Those awful Kia Forte commercials from '09 are still stuck in my head dammit

The CP commercial needed something in the middle so we understand the conflict. Either...

1) A quick cut of the one boy leaving the farm for his brother to care for while he pursues his career at CP.

2) Show the CP dude boinking his brother's wife in the barn and the farmer brother coming in with a shotgun.

Either works.

That is just a guess.

It's an original song composed for CP by Jeen O'Brien.

Both kids wanted to be a farmer, the father favoured one boy, taught him to farm. Unwanted kid leaves the family disgruntled after seeing a train. Comes back years later, both brothers try to show the other up with gifts from their own profession. Long awkward pause. hug. love. the end.

The CP commerical wins as the worst by a landslide.

So unintentionally funny, so not emotionally-charged, so ridiculous in its execution. That hand-shake at the end makes me want to punch both brothers and tell their kids how ugly they are.

So... Did he boink his brother's wife or not?

no, the train kid always liked trains. He was playing with the train under the tree and the other kid blocked it with the tractor. Then in the barn he used two wagons to block the tractor kid. Probably got his ass kicked after. Dad loved tractor kid more, but eventually train kid lived his dream and drove the train.

lesson of the story, according to the commercial, it takes all of us to make this country work!!!

All in all, way too much of a story for a commercial. The whole thing is awkward and its kind of like the brothers are socially maladjusted, not matured. I would hate it, except I love to watch trains. Would have been great to have one going through my back yard when I was a kid!

One thing I keep wondering though, is that the original train and the 10 years later train both look like they are using the same engine. Come on, there were some advances in the last decade!! (of course engines last more than 10 years so it could be the same one).

#4 can't stand.

#2 don't like that much but doesn't annoy me

#1 don't remember

#5 they don't play often enough for me to hate. Can't even remember much about bc I try to ignore commercials. Something about pressure and getting squeezed by the walls in the hall
