A few months ago, we posted the video of Honda’s ‘Outdoor Rink’ commercial. In it, US hockey legends Mike Richter, Neal Broten, and Pat LaFontaine drive their assorted Hondas to a pond in Minnesota and build a little pond hockey rink for the neighborhood folks to enjoy. Northern Americana at its best.
Today we bring you two more. I’m actually in the market for a new SUV, and in my internet research travels, came upon Honda’s hat-trick of hockey-based commercials. In addition to ‘Outdoor Rink’, Honda produced two other commercials of note, ‘5AM Practices” and ‘Reliability’. As someone who remembers getting half-dressed in a pre-dawn living room (and who is looking forward to doing the same with my son very soon), I find these commercials to be very nostalgic and well-done. Kudos to Honda for recognizing this niche market.
