Every Friday we will be adding one of our favourite hockey videos from over the years. Some might be painful, some might be just plain dirty, but they all have a story behind them that make them downright awesome and great to watch over and over again.
Phil Kessel made headlines earlier this week for his comments made on the disconnect he and coach Ron Wilson have. When the shy, introverted Kessel said "maybe it's just not working out here" - alarm bells went off. Had Kessel not been so awkward, he might have avoided the criticism that came with his comments when people thought he wanted out of Toronto. Taken out of context, it looks bad. What he meant was the line he was on was not working out - it just didn't come out that way.
Even Tyler Bozak laughs when Kessel gets interviewed because of his awkwardness, but at least Kessel isn't afraid to fly. The attention Kessel receives is unwanted, such as being picked last in the All Star Draft (having James Duthie call him down after he sits down is hard to watch) and having Alex Ovechkin take a picture of him on national television. However one of my favourite Phil Kessel awkward moments is from the 2007 NHL Road Trip commercial.
All he says is "Go! Go! Go!" but it makes me laugh everytime. He's also pretty funny in this behind the scenes video for the commercial. When they put a hole in the wall for the 2nd time and he speaks, its gold.
What's your favourite thing about this commercial?
