We Made a Commercial


As you may have heard, a really cool project has been in the works over the past few days to bring Red Wings Brasil's Guilherme (or "Herm" as I ignorantly started calling him one day) to Detroit to see his first Wings game. If you know nothing about this, you can catch up by clicking the A2Y link at the bottom and watch the video. We're not the Coen brothers, but we did what we could with the (very) limited resources we had.

Spill the beans, boys - this was what you had in mind when you invented aLOL (tm Tyler), wasn't it?

Love the ever-so-distinguished pullover sweaters. :D

OK ok ok, I have to stop laughing to write. Holy Jeebus, that was awesome.

Porque?!?

Because you dressed up your little bro as Rosby just to bitch slap him...while wearing your grandpa's sweater. Awesome. If I had a little brother or a tiny Thai slave boy, I'd do the same.

And I better get some viagra in my system early; gotta be hype all day. Me and Vin Diesel.

If I wasn't gay, I'd totally marry you two.

Everything about this is great; the slap could have used more force though.

Good work guys, and an extra special thanks to your lighting guy, he's helped me out a ton throughout my life as well.

All brazilian fans are proud of you guys to made this happen.

Holy crap, this is awesome. The bitch slap was just an added bonus. Brilliant. You guys rule.

And now I know you don't actually look like Emilio so I can get over my disappointment before March.

Fantastic.

After making a donation how long until my Amish made mobile fireplace arrives? Well done boys. Watching this video is going to become a yearly tradition.

Paul Kukla said...

Great job boys, now I am off to watch PBS.

Friggin brilliant work. Just...genius.

I especially like how Fake Herm yelled for the butter.

Guilherme Calciolari said...

Brilliant guys, just brilliant. And nice job on the "Guilherme" speech.

And your dramatization was very authentic.

Thanks, TTD.

(and is so great to see a John Hughes posthumos film)

The Triple Deke is clutch.

This is gold.

Chris said...

holy shit.

EM said...

There's an instant classic if ever I saw one.

Brilliant.

Excellent. We had to start a separate secret fund to bring Fake Herm up from Brazsil to shoot that two second clip, so we're glad you enjoyed it.

I think I just fell in love with you <3

beanie said...

Brilliant. I see new careers in your futures. ;)

ChristineRWBNB said...

Sheer brilliance. I think TTD needs it's own production company and satellite channel!

Brendan said...

Don't know what to say other than 'terrific.' But I'm tired of word-dropping that one. It's losing it's novelty. The slap was a great touch. Nice going, once again.

Tell Herm, when he gets here, that we want his Brasilian seed. There's a fifty-fifty chance it will come out female, and if that's the case a 100-0 chance it will look like a Victoria's Secret model. And don't let him tell you they aren't all that hot down there...

Baroque said...

I just can't stop giggling. Nice work.

monkey said...

You sickos have just made yourselves the most awesomest Red Wings bloggers ever, which puts you high in the runnin' for most awesomest world wide.

monkey said...

Excellent work, however you forgot to mention that Brazsil is deep in the southernmost reaches of Mexico.

Mariam said...

LOL this is great! I think it's awesome what you guys are doing. And just an FYI, I would've punched the kid in the Crosby shirt. haha

Anonymous said...

Amazing project from A2Y and the Wings blogosphere. The commercial is incredible. Guy in the Crosby shirt = priceless.

cmk said...

I seriously want to adopt you guys! (Don't get too excited--there is NO money for you to inherit.) Great job and thanks for the laughs.
