Remember those tear-inducing, pride-swelling commercials from a few years back that featured historic Canadian events? Well, Historica Canada has just launched a new one ahead of Remembrance Day on Tuesday and it’s pretty much as Canadian as you can get.
Hockey? Check. The commercial follows the Winnipeg Falcons, the Icelandic-Canadian hockey team that served in the First World War before coming home (tragically, minus a few players) and winning the inaugural gold medal in Olympic hockey.
Don Cherry? Check. Well, sort of check. The commercial is headed by 19-2 star Jared Keeso, who also played Don Cherry in the classic CBC biopics.
Canadian accents? Check, check and check. Nobody has a more commanding voice than Keeso. Except…
Strombo? Check! Although new Hockey Night in Canada host George Stroumboulopoulos can’t be seen ON camera, he narrates parts of the minute-long clip.
Check it out for yourself. We dare you not to get goosebumps.
