Although it was a tough year for our Oilers and all the Canadian teams have been eliminated from this year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs, there is still nothing better than playoff hockey. Now that we’re down to the final four, the intensity on the ice is turned up to the max and every moment could represent a game-changing play.
While the action on the ice is frenetic, Honda is providing some relief during commercial breaks with a series of light-hearted ads titled “Hockey is More Than Just 60 Minutes.” As the official vehicle of the NHL and the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Honda is showcasing its vehicles in very familiar situations for parents across Canada. From early morning practices to slap shots slamming into the garage, parents make a lot of sacrifices to allow their kids to play hockey, and that’s exactly what these ads portray. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the Honda’s “Hockey is More Than Just 60 Minutes” commercials from the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Hauler of the Gear
Daughter in one hand, hockey equipment in the other, this dad has a little more trouble than he’d like getting to early morning practice. While the automatic sliding doors and trunk lid on the Honda Odyssey help him access the things he needs, a stray hockey stick makes things a little more difficult.
This one is our personal favorite, as a young man works on his slap shot by pounding them against the garage door next to the family’s Honda CR-V. In a very fatherly manner, dad walks over and pounds on the window to remind him to use the portable goal.
Smelly Jersey Laundry
No Honda vehicles in this one, but it is perhaps the funniest of the bunch. As mom shuffles through the hockey gear, she notices a rather pungent odor. Initially, she thinks the smell might be associated with her kids’ jerseys, but quickly realizes that this smell is coming from a very different source!
When you need a break from the intensity on the ice, Honda’s ads provide a little comic and sentimental relief. If you’re like these parents or need little extra space for when your turn comes up in the carpool, we carry a number of great family-focused vehicles with exceptional financing options.
