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.
