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.

I understand these commercials with pro teams have all kinds of copyright and license laws but it's funny that the Devil players have no jersey numbers or names on their back.

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.

Yeah it would've been better with real players but if they can't do that then at least put fake names like Smith 55 or Dingleberry 28. I try to suspend disbelief during these commercials but no jersey numbers or names really makes it seem cheap.

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.

There's also a print ad like that with the Devils. Apparently it was in Sports Illustrated. HEre it is (got this from the sportslogos.net forums).

You can tell from the background and the background in the TV commercials that the ad and photos were done at South Mountain.

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 hear you there puckrock! :rant: I am really tired of seeing the Messier 94' and the Bourque 01' SC being shown. :argh: It would be nice to maybe mention how the Devils did 3 cups in 9 years or at least show the 00' or the 03' SC ones.

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.
