Sidney Crosby -Tim Hortons commercial...

RE: the commercial where Crosby's team bus breaks down and he ends up playing with a few kids on an outdoor rink.

How many things don't belong here?

1) Would the Penguins be taking a bus along such a remote path?

2) None of the kids or their parents ask for autographs or pictures.

3) Sidney Crosby walks off the bus by himself.(No Penguins staff or teammates along, if for no greater reason than just sheer curiosity.)

4) Why would such an apparently small isolated rink be equipped with lights?

Has anyone spotted anything else?

Dude... it's a ****ing commercial. Are you trying to tell me you think there's three frogs that croak "Bus" "Wei" "Ser" as well? Or two Cavemen?

It should have been a Caps bus, and Ovechkin should have walked off the bus and eaten all the children.

I laughed at this the first time I saw it. I definitely made a joke to my girlfriend about the rest of the Pens being jerks.

I tend to overanalyze commercials too, but I don't really think that it's meant to be thought about that much on a realistic level. It's just another sappy commercial pandering to our nostalgic love of the grassroots of hockey, while at the same time pointing out how much involvement the company has in minor hockey in this country.

A slight resemblance to this?

The Blackhawk players didn't leave Gravenhurst without spending a little cash. On the way out of town, their bus pulled into a McDonald's, where the players marched in and began ordering.

“People kind of looked, ‘What's going on here?'” Burish said. “Guys come in dressed up in nice suits start ordering Big Macs and French fries. Then we saw some little hockey cards of Kane and Toews [in the restaurant] and Toews was actually the one who asked to go to McDonald's so we think he did that so he could see his hockey card.”

I've often wondered about that Cialis commercial... how the **** does the entire lawn flood off of one little sprinkler?

I was very ticked off a few weeks ago when I managed to meet all four of the conditions defined by the commercial - pond hockey, broken greyhound, tim hortons, little kid presence- and Sidney Crosby failed to show up.

Granted, there was no plausible reason as to why Sid would show up randomly in London Ontario, but still, clearly the commercial is misleading and should be canned.

The music is so depressing. This commercial always kills the mood.

It can't be that remote since the third parent shows up at the end with hot coffee, so it must be near a Tim Horton's! Or perhaps your fifth question should be...why is there a Tim's nearby such a remote pond?

Yes, I know we're way over-analysing

The Vancouver Canucks once showed up at a neighbourhood outdoor rink here in Ottawa for a practice, I guess that's as close as you're going to get in real life.

How about the Uncle Ben's rice commercial, you know the one with the girl in the bra, that is ready in two minutes. Well the microwave clock goes up and dings at 2:00. I've never seen a microwave do this before, is it some sort of international microwave?

Yeah I've spotted someone who didn't understand the message was about buying some doughnuts instead of the realistic possibility of where a bus breaks down. Perhaps we can analyze how realistic it was for Troy Polamalu to attack a man and tear his shirt off over a bottle of coke zero, oh and they don't come in glass bottles by the way!
