NHL 15: Bergeron and Marchand commercials

NHL 15: Bergeron and Marchand commercials

With NHL 15 being released a week from this Tuesday, EA Sports unveiled two of its advertisements – to hype the upcoming video game for the Playstation 4, XBox One, XBox 360 and Playstation 3 gaming consoles – that featured cover athlete Patrice Bergeron and fellow linemate Brad Marchand.

Both Bergeron and Marchand echoed a lighter side of things for their ads. Bergeron, the reigning Selke Trophy winner, recited some poetry to explain his feelings. Marchand, meanwhile, performed a song entitled “I want to marry NHL 15.”

Bergeron is great at many things, but it’s safe to say that he won’t be receiving a Nobel Peace Prize anytime soon after this clip:

And then there’s Marchand’s song, one that won’t be receiving any air time on Top 40 stations around the country anytime soon. As a matter of fact, I’m pretty sure former American Idol judge Simon Cowell would’ve humiliated him if he were judging this performance:

This is not the first time that Marchand’s vocals, or lack thereof were on display. Going back to the post Stanley Cup triumph events of 2011, Marchand, along with Bergeron tried to rap to “Black and Yellow” during the team’s parade in Boston just a few days after the Black and Gold defeated the Canucks for their first taste of Lord Stanley in 39 years:

A few weeks later, Marchand debuted an alter ego “Rad Marchand” that performed some 80’s classics like “Everybody Wang Chung Tonight” and “Never Gonna Give You Up” on Toucher and Rich. The results were equally impressive:

It’s safe to say that Bergeron and Marchand should stick to their day jobs. At the same time, it’s also nice to see them out of their element again and having a little fun, even at their own expense.

I’m sure that this won’t be the last time Bergeron and/or Marchand are brought aboard to hype NHL 15 (demo available now). Stick with Bruins Daily for more coverage on NHL 15, as well as the 2014-15 Boston Bruins.
