Video- The King Of Hockey Too?

via Budweiser Canada marketing firm,

Just a few weeks ago, Budweiser made the dreams of two unsuspecting beer league hockey teams come true by giving them the thrill of playing just like professionals.

On December 21st 2011, Les Amigos and The Toronto Generals were ready to play their weekly hockey game when Budweiser transformed a regularly scheduled match into an epic high-energy spectacle complete with screaming fans, play-by-play announcers, and even a Budweiser-branded Zamboni! 
The catch? This epic moment was captured on film and will be featured as Budweiser’s Canadian Super Bowl XLVI commercial .

We are pleased to share with you, these awe inspiring 2 minutes that turned the childhood dreams of 30 men into full blown reality. Re-live the nostalgia alongside Canadians across the country this Super Bowl Sunday, when this ad airs nationally on February 5th.

Brilliant idea, and brilliantly implemented.

That is what hockey should be about, guys playing because they love the game.

But the thrill for those guys playing for a packed house, priceless.

Well done, Budweiser, very well done.
