Yeah it looks pretty damn bad. I really hope that's some clever form of satire and not what I think it is.

That's from Karjala Cup. Has nothing to do with WC

The date in the ad says it's from last November, are they clairvoyant or does this have nothing to do with the upcoming semi-final game?

Thats stupid, but its allready forgotten. Why did you bring this up? To collect HFboard points or are you from Iltapaska and try to stir things up to get tabloids?

This is the real advertisement for WC



And by the way that commercial didnt point to WW2 or Russia in any means.

The uniforms sure were WW2-like. But the point of the commercial was comparing the battle for the roster spots to these World Championships as tough as the military training.

Unfortunately those uniforms were still used 10 years ago in our glorious army. Atleast i had "army gray" uniform when i was there.

Talking about the commercials I think this one that the Slovak TV has this year with Team Slovakia coach Vujtek is pretty epic:



00:00-00:05 Maybe I have lived through more thany anyone of you
00:06-00:10 Maybe I see things that you miss
00:11-00:15 While doing my job I have gained a lot of friends
00:16-00:21 Sadly I wear some of them only in my heart now
00:22-00:27 You probably have a different view on many things than I do
00:28-00:31 But there´s one thing that we definitely have in common
00:32-00:36 The feeling of winning

Can we please close this topic? 6month old ad with "it's a war" theme to pump up national pride. Yea, some don't like it, I thought it was pretty funny but still, it's not relevant to Finland-Russia game in any way.

Wow, thanks for the translation.

The part: "While doing my job I have gained a lot of friends. Sadly I wear some of them only in my heart now" is well said and emotional. I don't know if he meant to refer to specific people, but Pavol Demitra came to my mind immediately.

God, I love Slovakia. Ever since Miro Satan and Zdeno Ciger played in the Oilers during 95-96 I've been a huge Slovakia fan in international competitions. They always play their hearts out.

One of the most stupid opening posts I've seen...

1) That commercial was made for other hockey tournament half year ago.
2) That had nothing to do with Russia
3) That had nothing to do with WW II

"Finland Vs Russia it's WorldWar II rematch" - really wtf?

JYP88 I'm disappoint.

And that is one of the best finnish hockey ads ever!

The song "Leijonaa mä metsästän (I'm hunting lions)" was made for kids in early 90's or late 80's I think.

Here is the original

Right after he says that, they cut to the pin (with 38 on it) he wears.

Oh allright thanks. I missed that because I was reading the translation on the fly.

Since it was a commercial directed at Slovak fans, it was meant this way first and foremost. But there´s also the fact that Vujtek was the coach of Lokomotiv Yaroslavl druing the 2010/11 season (and 01-03 before that), so it might have an another undertone too when you look at it from that way.
