“Such an awesome experience working with @ernieelsgolf today on the set for @sapsports new commercial,” Oshie wrote on Instagram. “Definitely out of my comfort zone but Producer #RickyMabe and everyone behind the scenes made it a lot easier. Thanks @sapsports and @nhlpa for the opportunity!”
The Capitals forward might have felt uneasy in his first major acting gig, but the finished product shows Oshie is a star both on and off the ice.
The commercial, entitled Being Captain With The Big Easy, shows Els mentoring three golfers struggling with confidence and focus. There’s subtle promotion for SAP’s offerings as a management company, but a majority of the clip is showing what true leadership is through humor.
