We all know that Blackhawks stars Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews know how to make moves on the ice. But check out this commercial for the Dell Streak, a kind of hybrid phone/tablet that runs on the Android system.
And after you watch it -- closely -- go past the jump to find out how this commercial might -- just might -- be an invasion of Toews' privacy. Unfortunately, the video was removed by the YouTube user who originally posted it. If the Deep Dish can find another version, we'll post it. In the meantime, Puck Daddy has some screenshots and details, also past the jump.
Greg Wyshynski, who writes the excellent Puck Daddy column for Yahoo!, deconstructs the Kane/Toews commercial, complete with stillframe screenshots, and then goes in for the kill, quoting Eric from 5-hole.com (make sure you're looking at the Facebook screenshot from Eric's post when you read this):
Oh hey, did you see Toews’ email address and both of their facebook IDs? No? OK, here’s a screen shot for you:
I hope Dell didn’t actually use their real accounts. Then again, I doubt that Tazers’ email address is email@example.com. But maybe it is.
Well, maybe it is, and maybe it isn't. In any case, Wyshynski sums it up perfectly:
This is the single greatest hockey commercial ever made.
And one more thing. It took me a while, but I finally placed the voiceover on the commercial. It sounds like longtime Chicago sportscaster Bruce Wolf. And he's perfect for the role.
