Unofficial Leak: The Ottawa Senators Marketing Department’s Short List of Possible 2014-2015 Slogans (and The Accompanying Mid-Game Entertainment For Each)

[All credit here goes to Dusty, who left these in our inbox like that great coworker who leaves a thing of Timbits in the kitchen and doesn’t call attention to it because he knows they’ll be more delicious if you just find them.]

“Where’s Your RED At?” (A group of local dad-rock journeymen to provide a Sens themed interpretation of the immortal Basement Jaxx party jam.)

“Bringing Out The RED” (in tribute to the classic 1999 Nicolas Cage/Ving Rhames film, the zamboni will be outfitted to look like an ambulance and the harmonica riff from “TB Sheets” will be played when goals are scored)

“Capital Funishment” (Spartacat wears an executioner’s hood, carries an axe. Pretty straight forward stuff, this one writes itself.)

“This Town Needs a REDnema” (to feature a fun ‘between periods’ video of the “Partyman” scene from the 1989 Batman movie, but instead of portraits, the video is edited to look like the Joker is painting over pictures of rival hockey players. It’s a tall order, but I think the Sens’ in-house AV dept. is up for the challenge.)

[As an aside: can we have a conversation about "Batdance?" This is Prince at his trollingest, right? It's seven minutes long. He's dressed as the Joker, but with Two Face makeup on. He starts the song by saying "Get the fuck up!" And despite all of this, he still manages to shoehorn in a legitimately brilliant and sexy part, which is of course the breakdown with the troupe of Vicki Vales. If you think Prince wouldn't be up for being involved in an Ottawa Senators promotional campaign...well, Batdance.]

“Death SENtence” (ignore this one, this was just an early draft of “Capital Funishment”.)
