Ovi O’s are currently sold out at many local Giant Food stores, but that doesn’t mean the promotion train must stop.
Sunday, the Washington Capitals released a 30-second clip featuring Alex Ovechkin promoting his signature cereal by giving it to some of his lucky co-workers. Like Caps general manager Brian MacLellan.
Who wants #OviOs? Somebody?

Ovi seems to have downed a 24-pack of Red Bulls before filming.
“YASS, OVI O’S!” Ovechkin says as he peels open a cabinet with boxes of his cereal. “MAKE IT A GR8 MORNING!”
He then wanders into the second-floor offices of MedStar Capitals Iceplex where many Monumental Sports and Entertainment workers set up shop.
“Who wants cereal?… Somebody?”
Then he ambles into Mac’s office.
“Hey, Ovi O’s,” Ovechkin says.
“Nice,” MacLellan says, sporting a wry smile.
“Make it a gr8 morning,” Ovi responds.
“Make it a gr8 morning!” MacLellan repeats.
But then our protagonist runs into a problem.
“Where’s milk?” Ovechkin says.
Luckily, someone off-screen bails the Great 8 out and pours milk into Don Fishman’s bowl. Fishman is a cap specialist and the Capitals’ assistant general manager & director of legal affairs.
On September 10, Ovechkin promoted his cereal stopping at three different locations in DC, including an elementary school and hospital. During Ovi’s last stop of the day, he worked at a DC Giant as a cashier which was both awkward and funny.
There has been a huge demand for the cereal and Giant Food says that they will be sending more shipments soon.
Happy birthday, @ovi8! Clearly @Capitals fans take their breakfast pretty seriously, because Ovi-O’s are already sold out in some locations. If you can’t find them at your store, fear not—more boxes are on their way! pic.twitter.com/zLmZCLF60Y
