DH Vancouver Staff Feb 22, 2014 12:15 pm

Are you interested in a dish of Swedish meatballs? It goes without saying that Canadians love ice hockey, and there’s no question that the sport and game is a rallying call for national pride.

In time for Sunday men’s Olympic gold medal face off between Sweden and defending champions Canada, an amazing pump up video has been created to show how “Canadians are a gentle people who love hockey above all else.”

“Can you tell me why there will be more man hours lost in the gold medal game than the rest of the year combined?” Truer words have never been said.

The video’s theme also evokes memories of the classic, patriotic Molson Canadian commercials made in the 1990s and early-2000s.

Go, Canada Go!
