Canadian Tire Albert Commercial - 1984 Canadian Tire is a huge chain of stores in Canada that sells automotive products, household items, sports equipment, gardening supplies...you name it. This 1984 commercial became very well known. The message is simple: Buy your hockey equipment at Canadian Tire and you'll rise from the last kid chosen at a pickup game to a superstar. (Funny note: For a while it was not uncommon for NHL fans at games in Canadian cities to chant "Albert! Albert!" when the home team was playing poorly.)

One of the great mysteries of our time: Why does Albert have his first name on the back of his jersey instead of his last name?

Always puzzled me, too. IIRC, the advertising agency which did this commercial (and the Help me unload a couple of tires I bought, son bicycle commercial) was based in the US, which was a bit of a scandal for Canadian Tire.

True. I first heard about this commercial being made in the USA when Sports Illustrated had a small blurb about the 'Albert! Albert!' chants occasionally coming from disenchanted crowds at Canadian NHL arenas.
