Mayor Naheed Nenshi's Calgary Stampeder Game Face!

  When I first saw this ad on a giant billboard on Blackfoot Trail last week, I had to do a double take!  I thought "was that Mayor Naheed Nenshi in the ad for the Calgary Stampeders?"  I tried looking online for a copy of the ad without luck,  but soon found it in the Calgary Herald.

Personally, I think that this is a really cool ad.  I cannot imagine many political figures being able to pull this off the way he did.  Can you imagine Al Duerr or Bronco trying to be as cool as this?  Me neither.

The fact that Mayor Nenshi allows himself to be shown in a humorous light impresses me.

Go Stamps Go!

  1. Totally love this ad too!! Go Nenshi!!!

  2. I think this is an awesome ad, go Nenshi and Go Stamps! I can't imagine any other former mayors being this much fun either!

  3. I would like to think that the Mayor of Calgary has better things to do than spend an afternoon posing for a billboard. Education! Roads! Homelessness! Get back to work.

  4. Love the ad...Anne-Marie who says he did it on our time? Even if he did, he is promoting OUR football team!!! It might actually INCREASE ticket sales!!! Which, in turn creates increased VENDOR sales!!! That's supposed to be a bad thing??? Give your head a shake & go to a STAMPS game!!!
