the New Blues commercials

Postby nick314 » Mon Oct 12, 2009 4:25 pm

Anybody see these yet? just saw a blog post about it on the Riverfront Times' page -- it has jon hamm of the TV show "Mad Men" with his alleged 15-year-old Blues hat. Pretty awesome commercial.

Jon Hamm is a HUGE Blues Hockey Geek

That commercial is on twice each break. For those with season tickets, you'll get to see it plenty of times for the away games.

awesomely scripted commerical. too bad he hasn't actually had that hat 15 years. Last i checked, that logo wasn't put in to use until 1998. But they dirtied the hat up enough to convince the casual fan.

That's pretty stupid. It's basically, hey look, we have a celebrity fan! Wooo! And it's, uh, the guy from Mad Men, uh, wow...

I'm glad that I'm not the only one who noticed the lie about the hat. Shame on you, Blues organization!

Yea that was the first thing I said about the commercial. I can always count on my friends at LGB to help me be cynical towards the new Blues advertising.

I pretty sure I had that hat. I got it in '00 and I'm pretty sure mine looked a lot worse than that after 3 or 4 years of wearing it.

Maybe guys he has had the hat since it was first offered but been a fan since before then.

I noticed the logo myself but thought hey, its a good commercial and at least he talked about a few old time Blues.

It's possible the hat itself is 15 years old, but the logo on the front had been replaced with a new patch.

Dude could have some sentimental value to that specific hat or something, but wanted the new logo on it when they switched.

It's possible.
Just sayin'.

To tell you the truth, it's kinda cool to see famous people say they are Blues fans. I'm not really sure why that is...it just is.
