Young & Rubicam Leaves Copy to Hockey Players
Young & Rubicam NY got off easy creating this new commercial hyping the NHL Playoffs. More correctly, the copywriters got off easy? How? There's no copy in this commercial? Why? Because there are no words to explain the feeling of winning The Stanley Cup.
And we have no words to describe how beautifully eloquent this spot is. Oh wait. We just did. Sorry.
The commercial consists of a collage of clips showing those who have won The Stanley Cup searching for words to describe how they feel immediately after winning. Come to think of it, saying nothing is much better than saying anything at all. Barring a few exceptions, when most athletes open their mouths after a win, they spout the same boring platitudes over and over again. Kudos fo Y&R for not going down that lame path.
Damn, we need to stop talking lest we be accused of ruining the moment with meaningless platitudes.
