Watch This: Sidney Crosby works the Tim Hortons drive-thru

Pro hockey players elicit laughs in new ad

What can’t Sidney Crosby do?

He won Olympic Gold with Team Canada in 2010 and lead the Pittsburgh Penguins to Stanley Cup glory in 2009, but ask him to man a Tim Hortons drive-thru and he cracks (up) under pressure.

Watch as Sid the Kid and fellow NHL-er Nathan MacKinnon serve morning coffee to customers in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia in these spots from J. Walter Thompson.
