Devils Locker Room Verizon Commercial

22 posts in this topic

Has anyone seen this commercial it's hilarious. It's like the NFL commercials they did this year. It shows a bunch of Devils players (actors not actual players) in the Devils trainer with one having a Madden like scare under his eye. Then some random guy getting in the whirlpool and screaming because of the water. Then it has Doc doing a voice over go "You wouldn't Make it in the NHL". After that it cuts to a picture of the phone with a Devils highlight on the phone screen. But here's the thing the highlight is of Cam tipping a shot (that is wither saved or goes wide). They couldn't find a better highlight to show than Cam tipping a shot and not scoring a goal? It's a funny commercial but the highlight selection is odd.

They should have used the real players. Based on on all the print ads and TV ads for this campaign it looks like the shot the entire thing down at South Mountain. Granted it would cost a lot more to use the real players.

There's also one with the Pens, again just actors. Some guy is sitting on the bench watching the Pen players go on and off the ice. They are in practice jerseys.

yes...lol!

commercial was great...would have been much better with real players, but none the less it was funny as hell...especially the pip squeak who gets decked...lol!

the one guy had the madden scar and stiches from '03...it was probably a lot cheaper to use extras.

The guy getting his eyes checked looked like Niedermayer.

The guy getting stitched up was obviously a reference to Madden.

They played that commercial a few times last night. I like the Madden one for VS. where he is pictured with that gash on his left cheekbone during the 2003 playoffs. :evil:

I got a kick out of this commercial as well, lol. It's about time VS did something with the Devils besides showing commercials of them being victimized by Messier and Bourque. 3 cups in 9 years, and not a mention from that - but some old geezer riding the Avs Stanley Cup Shuttle Bus scores a goal and that makes it in. :rant:

Blah, I'll shut up now.

I've seen it several times during the playoffs so far. I believe it aired during the Dallas game last night.

Not to mention that the premise of the Bourque ad ("the engraver finally has to learn to spell Bourque") is a load of crap. Phil Bourque of the Pens was on the cup twice before the Geezer made it on.

OH YEAH DISPROVED ON A TECHNICALITY!!

I didn't rant about those damm NHL ads. So PAINFULLY obvious they're anti-devils. I was thinking they'd ahve to show Devils winning at some point just because it's a nice irony. But no... it's like an all out anti-Devils campaign. i dont get it :noclue:

Oh and I was thinking these verizon ads can't be players because lou wouldn't stand for it -- this way it's the devils name only being (semi) marketed. :giggle:
