Video: Ryan Kesler, Jack Johnson and the 2K Sports shower prank

Greg Wyshynski

Say what you will about the NHL series from 2K Sports, but their marketing and promotional teams give it the 'ol college try. From the 'This-is-SportsCenter'-esque Rick Nash(notes) video from a few years back to the ill-conceived hockey moms to Alex Ovechkin(notes) on the Zamboni in Manhattan, they've done some daring things to attempt to scale Mount EA Sports in the hockey gaming market.

The latest: NHL 2K11 cover boy Ryan Kesler(notes) of the Vancouver Canucks and game spokes-player Jack Johnson(notes) of the Los Angeles Kings participate in some hijinks involving a 2K tour bus and a cramped shower.

Dumb? Totally. But any clip that involves Ryan Kesler serenading Jack Johnson with the line "Terry Murray's his dad/but that ain't so bad" deserves at least a few moments of your time. Even if the game itself, a Wii-only title, doesn't exactly look like something you're sleeping outside of Best Buy to purchase on release day.
