You know on “The Office,” when Steve Carell was about to do something spectacularly awkward, and you could feel its approach through a million miles of satellite transmission and wiring? I would have to get up and leave the room. Still haven’t made it through the dueling drunk Maid of Honor speeches in Bridesmaids.
So I’m just going to put this here and watch through my fingers:
The Avs new #WhyNotUs campaign is great. Any video that starts with this shot of Gabe Landeskog is award-winning filmmaking. It breathes new life into the world’s most overplayed song but I personally may never make it to the end.
Thirty seconds in I had to stop. Before anything even happened I nearly ran from the room – I’d leave it on, of course, for my empty chair to watch.
Oh to have been in the meeting where this became a reality! I’d suggest it. Then I’d have to say, “I wasn’t serious!” before nervously fidgeting into a heap on the floor while someone else made it real.
I can’t handle this but at the same time I want more.
Points to the guys for doing this – and really going for it. That is some serious drumming. I lip sync along to everything at the gym and don’t look half this good sweaty but I assume no one is watching me. May need to rethink that.
Can other teams do music videos? Can the Oilers do “Diana” because it’s my favorite One Direction song? How about the the Lightning all sing Taylor Swift’s “Hey Stephen [sic]” to their new captain? A Best of the 90’s NHL mashup where Dupuis and Kunitz hold a picture of Crosby and the Bel Biv Devoe line, “Never trust a big butt and a smile?”
I HAVE IDEAS, PEOPLE! It’ll just take me ten tries to watch the whole thing.
Don’t stop, Colorado. Never stop.Tags: colorado avalanche, Gabriel Landeskog, matt duchene
