Gretzky’s a smash in EA’s ‘NHL Slapshot’ ad

EA-Gretsky

What's Wayne Gretzky been up to lately? It's amazing how often that question hasn't crossed my mind. Agency Heat in San Francisco presents a portrait of the retired hockey legend in the spot below for EA's NHL Slapshot for the Wii. He's planted in front of a TV screen, hockey stick in hand, smashing everything in sight, until a housekeeper powers up Slapshot and hands him a junior-size Wii stick. I guess this just proves that Canadians are kinda slow, eh? Besides, I don't get what the fuss is about. Even if he breaks one MVP trophy, he's still got eight more to go. Check out some behind-the-scenes footage of Gretzky playing the game with his son Tristan after the jump.
