Gotta See It: SKA St. Petersburg’s insane playoff promo video

Some ad campaigns rely on subtlety to win over its audience.

Others punch you in the face.

SKA Saint Petersburg of the KHL went with Option 2 for their playoff push video.

This cannon-firing, motorcycle-revving, horse-rearing, drum-banging, guitar-shredding, cigar-lighting, bullet-dropping, explosion-having, tank-bearing, cheerleader-posing epic of a promotional video contains just about everything – it even has actual hockey clips mingled in!

SKA begins its Gagarin Cup chase on Thursday against HC Vityaz.

Pavel Datsyuk, Ilya Kovalchuk, and potential 2017-18 NHLer Vadim Shipachyov (dubbed the Russian Crosby by Evgeny Kuznetsov), are all on the team.
