The greatest Canadian beer commercial you'll ever see

Budweiser Canada’s 2012 Super Bowl commercial is, without a doubt, my favorite beer commercial. They told two rec league hockey teams that they were filming a documentary on beer-league hockey teams, and totally lied. Instead they packed their regular rink with rabid fans, face paint, t-shirt guns and mega replay screens. Check out the video for the shock, surprise and a bunch of regular Joes turned into superstars for one night. H/T to the PuckDaddy blog for pointing this video out. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to grab a frosty brew. Image = screen grab from Bud commercial.

It’s Sunday, the NFL schedule is packed, MLB is getting close to the playoffs and the NHL and NBA seasons are just around the corner. As a sports fan, this is one of my favorite times of the year. There are numerous excuses to sit down and take in multiple games each week – just ask my fiancé. But just because there are reasons to watch games, doesn’t mean there are reasons to blow your paycheque. Catching games is one of the cheapest ways I can get together with a lot of friends at a set time. Check out these tips for fun & cheap game days: Homefield Advantage Teams usually perform better at home, and so will you. Instead of spending an evening out at a sports bar, why not host the action at your place? You don’t even need to drag your butt off the couch and you’ll save on costs. Picking up a few beers, snacks and soft drinks always costs me less than dinner and drinks while watching the Canucks play.
