Ovechkin and McNabb's Capital One commercial


Well, we knew this Capital One commercial starring Alex Ovechkin and Donovan McNabb was coming. Sunday night, it arrived. Here's one television photography version of the spot, sure to be beloved by local sports fans in much the same way as Bruce Boudreau's Cup Holders and the Ameritel triplets are.

Now all we need is a tell-all McNabb book. Maybe call it "The McNabb Project."

McNab's acting skills seem to have regressed since his Campbell's Soup days.

looks like the College Park metro station got in there too... maybe they passed by on the way to filming campus?

Dan, what are you doing including something OTHER than the Redskins in the Bog? Get a grip, man! And give us more on the yellow pants. NOW!

What struck me as "huh" about this commercial was that Ovechkin's nickname is "Ovey," McNabb calls him "Ovey" but Ovechkin's moving van says on the side of it "Oles' Moving Company." Ovechkin's name doesn't even have an "L" in it. Sloppy.

Is there a way to see it in non-youtube version? I'm in China, blocked!
