Full disclosure: I worked the drive-thru window at Burger King in high school. And while it was great to get away from the flame-broiled hellfire of the burger assembly line and having to sculpt hours-old fried fish patties back into squares, the drive-thru offered its own customer-based challenges.
So I feel that myself, Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon all understand each other better now.
The Pittsburgh Penguins captain and the Colorado Avalanche’s star scorer – both the pride and joy of Cole Harbour – have a hilarious new ad campaign with Tim Horton’s in which they work the drive-thru in Dartmouth, Nova Scocia (i.e. thankfully miles and miles away from where Ryan O’Reilly lives, for safety’s sake).
Here are Nathan and Sid being very Canadian:

Here's Nathan McKinnon getting punked by his dad:
Here, Sid and Nate humo(u)r an idiot:

And finally, how much does a hockey puck weigh?
Gord bless this ad campaign.
For showing Sidney Crosby's personality. For trying to get people to pay attention to Nathan MacKinnon again. For using what appears to be the music from "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou." And for finally putting the plight of the fast food drive-thru working into the national conversation.
