The kind folks at Budweiser Canada lied. They admit it right up front. But it was one of those 'little white lies' that had made for what's being billed as the best Super Bowl ad so far this year. And the lie took place right here at Port Credit Arena.
We first saw the ad on You Tube a few days ago when the hit counter had just rolled over 300. It now has 500K in its sights. (Update Feb 5: 1,589,171)
The story is that the production team told two local (shout out to the Generals and the Amigos!) beer league teams they were making a documentary film on recreational league hockey. That's the lie part. They followed the players as they loaded their cars, hit the rink and hit the ice.
We won't ruin the surprise...tune it above and see how it all plays out.
