The Cup Holder

H/t to Capitals Kremlin for posting this clip:
Update: Thanks to White and Partners (the ad agency that put this spot together) for passing along a cleaner version.

A bit Presumptive....but very funny to see Gabby in his second acting job.

This pummels the Eddie Jordan Mercedes commercials, and perhaps tied with Crazy Ron's Caps promotion.

My dream is to see Boudreau in an Eastern Motors Commercial.

That "turn" at the beginning? Pure Dramatic Prairie Dog. -JW

It is so cheesy as to be an instant classic.

DiNiro
Nicholson
Boudreau...

The giants.

That's even better than the Post's NHL/Caps preview in the Sunday paper.

Oh, wait...

(I wish the Crazy Ron ads were on YouTube!)

Hey, just wanted to say thanks for posting this on your blog. I work at the ad agency that created these spots. And I also have to say, Coach Boudreau was really one hell of a guy to work with—totally down-to-earth, willing to do whatever we wanted, and one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. It’s easy to see why players respond to him so well.

If it’s cool, I wanted to post links to a cleaner version of “Cup Holder,” as well as links to two versions of another spot we produced with Coach called, “Face-Off.”

Hope you enjoy ‘em. We sure had a blast shooting ‘em.

Oh yeah, heard Hollywood is considering a remake of Slap Shot. Who knows? Might get another Boudreau cameo out of it.
