Without question, the dumbest ice hockey ads I've ever seen.


(Click ads, via. Coincidentally, the dumbest ad of any kind that I've ever seen featured a hockey scenario.) There are but two things in this entire world that I have the knowledge to talk about for longer than five minutes: advertising and hockey. These horrifically Photoshopped things are for the Hamburg Freezers (maybe the dumbest hockey team nickname ever), who play in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga. Not for Sissies? Deutschlanders, stick to soccer, S&M, and oompah bands. Two minutes for elbowing, by the way, on the goon "Freezer" in the left ad. Previous ice hockey-related ads.

Hahaha, wow. Those are terrible. And the name Hamburg Freezers? Were they trying to play off of frozen hamburgers? How about the Hamburg Erbuns?

Bad translation to English.
Speaking of which, up North we never call it "ice" hockey. The game is "hockey," all other versions, field, street, etc. get the explanation.

YES, I know. I wrote the headline with a "world" audience in mind.

I went to a fight the other night, and a hockey game broke out.

Ich ging zu einem Kampf der anderen Nacht, und ein Hockeyspiel ausbrach.

There's something that I love about the line "THEREFORE ONLY ON ICE". It's like it's being said by a tough hockey-playing robot. Do you think that's what they were going for?

The infraction on the left looks to me more like a 5 minute major, deliberate attempt to decapitate

European's playing puck lack the genetics to pull off the ol' hipcheck/facespray, as per the second picture, in which the Freezer has scars on his socks... Gary Cheevers wannabe.
