Today at Sunday: At the Movies with On Deadline, we have a brilliant Nike ad, a blockbuster uplifting video enjoyed 12.9 million times and an excellent look at the hockey fighting debate.
We are not fans of golf here at On Deadline but we can sure appreciate the dominance and greatness of Tiger Woods in that professional recreational activity. No one does it better than Tiger. Nike has taken advantage of his return from injury to show how life has been without Tiger for his competitors. A quick comedic bit, wait for the ending.
WHERE THE HELL IS MATT?
Enjoyed to the tune of 12.9 million views on YouTube, this clip is a monster blockbuster. It was an ad for Stride Gum, which follows Matt and his “dancing around the world” dream after quitting his job.
The soundtrack is catchy and uplifting. The cinematography eye-catching, with beautiful vistas unfolding before you…all while you try and figure out, “Where the Hell is Matt?”
The hockey fighting debate rages on.
With the death of 21-year-old Don Sanderson, who suffered a fatal head injury in a hockey fight, the debate on fighting’s place in the game has raged beyond sports media in Canada.
The Code, courtesy of The Fifth Estate, explores this element of the game, talking to the players and pundits who either celebrate or denounce it. On Deadline has previously weighed in on this, though we do not support fighting, we feel it is unrealistic to think it can be legislated out the game. Does fighting look stupid? Yes. Two grown men wailing away looks archaic and it does take away from the world’s fastest and intricate game. However, hockey will always be prone to violent outbursts.
The Code does a good job of weighing in on the debate. Let us know what you think after seeing this in-depth look at it. Click below to watch:
