Alex Ovechkin shoots pucks off a building for Capital One

Remember a couple months ago when word broke that Alex Ovechkin was launching slapshots from atop a building near Judiciary Square as part of his next Capital One commercial shoot?

UPDATE: Here’s the full commercial.

Well, the word was correct. The full 30-second spot will appear on Capital One’s Facebook page Monday evening at 6, and will be on local airwaves not long after. Until then, here’s a sneak peak at the footage, which does indeed involve some beautiful scenic views of the D.C. area, plus Ovechkin launching slapshots from atop a building near Judiciary Square. Plus, there’s one legit laugh line in the full spot which I can’t give away yet.

Also, some fans were worried this winter that the Capital One thing had cursed both Donovan McNabb and Ovi after their joint appearance, but with the way the Caps and Ovechkin ended their season, we can officially put the Capital One Curse to sleep.
