Brad Marchand sings, Patrice Bergeron recites poetry for NHL 15

Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand show their soft, romantic sides in these promotions for NHL 15. As usually happens when mixing commercials with hockey players, the results are hilarious.

At the NHL Awards, Patrice Bergeron was announced as the winner of the EA cover vote and now he’s reciting poetry for the game he’s representing.

With the release of NHL 15 around the corner, the marketing for it is in full gear. Today, EA released two video promotions for the game. In one, Bergeron snaps romantic poetry and in another, teammate Brad Marchand sings about his love for the game.

Both are pretty funny. Bravo.

As great as these commercials are, one of the all-timers still belongs to the Pittsburgh Penguins from a few years ago. Colby Armstrong, Max Talbot, Sergei Gonchar and Evgeni Malkin all have a starring role in the hilariously uncomfortable car dealership commercial. You can watch it again here.

What’s EA’s next commercial going to be? A Zdeno Chara sonnet?
