In early October, Alex Ovechkin shot a commercial for Papa John’s promoting his Wish Special. RMNB was given special access to go behind the scenes of the shoot.
The most incredible part of it however was during a few minutes of downtime between shots.
Please forgive my laughing, my brain was having a lot of trouble computing what I was seeing.
Ovechkin picked up a hockey stick and started puck juggling with a foam puck.
That was cool, but it wasn’t until Ovechkin started doing this lacrosse move that I thought I was sitting on my couch watching a CGI’d movie.
The dude’s effortlessly talented.
