Amateur Hockey Players Treated Like Pros by Budweiser Canada Great sports stunt timed to Super Bowl

We've been focusing on the U.S. Super Bowl ads this week, but here's a good one that will air on the Canadian broadcast. Filmmakers told two recreational hockey teams in Port Credit, Ontario, that they were filming a hockey documentary—but it was actually Budweiser Canada, who surprised the amateurs by filling their empty stadium with cheering fans, cheerleaders and sportscasters, giving the feel of a pro game. As you can see in the clip, the players were stunned. Flash mobs—I guess they're still good for something. Nice work by Anomaly.
