Canucks and Beyond

Because I Just Can’t Ignore It…

The CBC notes:

Stephen Colbert is every bit as passionate about The Hockey Theme as Canadians it seems, promising to license “the most precocious Arctic treasure of all” for use in the United States.

Video is below—and it’s fun but this whole continuing saga really makes me wonder what TSN/CTV was thinking, buying this theme music up. While people may one day come to identify the jingle as being associated with their network, I’m not sure hockey fans will ever hear it without thinking of Hockey Night in Canada.  After all, the music is nearly-synonymous with that iconic Saturday night game, not simply the NHL. 

So at the end of the day, didn’t TSN just spend whatever-number-of-millions to buy a song that advertises their own network rival? Just a thought.

Anyway, without further adieu, the madness of Stephen Colbert:
