Olympic Relay

I'm really getting tired of being bombarded with the same old annoying TV commercials over and over again while I'm trying to enjoy the Olympics. I know they are a necessary evil, but I tend to press the mute button and find something else to do while they're showing on the screen.
However, there's one Canadian ad that I can watch quite happily multiple times.... I find it inspired and amusing and I always giggle at the ending.



Although I don't think it's going to encourage me to shop at Rona more often. Anyone got a hammer handy?

I agree, this has to be an award winner.

I love it! And of course, it was funny at the end which I totally adore.

That's a good one. Hadn't seen that one down here, of course. I agree wholeheartedly, though, the same damn ads for almost two weeks now... it really starts to grate.

Very clever and BEAUTIFULLY Filmed! I think it might make me shop at RONA'S more often even though I have no idea what kind of store it is---Hardware? LOL!

Great ad! We're coming over with our bikes after seeing that great country.

Great advert - my husband is a nuisance when adverts appear as he keeps flicking channels and I am not sure if this annoys me more! Not sure why this is but when adverts come on the sound always increases on the TV.

That's a great one! Such a beautiful country from coast to coast!

As you already know, I LOVE that video. One of the best I've ever seen! It wins the Gold for me.

For some strange reason, all of the Olympics we watched on 2 different BBC channels had no commercials. On our Dutch channels, I can't remember. So I guess we were lucky!?!

Yeah, that is good!
Do you think they can get stuff to me in England?

That was terrific.
I sure was tired of the U.S. commercials too. Over and over and over again.....

The Rogers commercial are mind-numbingly awful but yes, Rona gave us something very clever with this one.

Yep, this is a super commercial. Most commercials put me to sleep.

I saw this ad once and it was a pleasure to see it again. It is very creative and beautiful – I wish there were more like it.

Thank you for this video. I enjoyed it immensely.

I didn’t like TV advertisements and loud commentators when I’m enthralled by the athletes’ challenges, either.
