Just saw it when I went to the YouTube home page. We were in fact the last team still alive in the playoffs to get one of those. All other teams were already showcased. We in fact had to make history to get acknowledged by the NHL for such a commercial.
People forget that the Flyers are a cash cow for the NHL so once the golden boys are out (Syd and Ovie), they are one of the best bets for high American ratings.
Yeah, it's kind of bizarre. The Flyers get frequently snubbed by the NHL for promotional purposes (if it wasn't for NBC, the Flyers would still be waiting for the Winter Classic), yet are one of the biggest merchandise-moving teams. For example, the Flyers had 4 of the top 20 best selling jerseys this year up to February (not sure about the whole season).
Haha who throws a $100+ jersey on the ice like that? Who has that kind of money?
They got really drunk, woke up this morning, and had no idea where there jersey was. They then watch our playoff game tomorrow, sill mad that his team lost, only too see this commercial and him throwing the jersey on the ice
The only worthy one so far that shows current playoff moments.
Agreed. With due respect to other teams and moments that they've used in the commercials from this year that game/moment is the only one that I think would be considered making history regardless of what happens the rest of the way in the playoffs. I mean the Bieksa one? Come on it's just a goal, and they didn't even win the series.
