Ovi’s new commercial is awesomely confusing

I have no idea what’s going on in this new Alex Ovechkin Gillette commercial, and it doesn’t matter. They could air it here in all its Russian glory and it would easily be one of the most popular ads on television. I mean, it’s got everything — rainbow kites, library ladies, ghosts, a random guy with a chainsaw, Elvis being kidnapped by a monkey. So much randomness. 

It also offers a few different looks for the Caps star. My favorite just might be Nerd Ovi.
