VIDEO: Alex Ovechkin And Semyon Varlamov's 'This Is Sportsenter Commercial

This is how you know you've made it. Maybe not for Semyon Varlamov so much, but Alex Ovechkin is finally a big enough celebrity to be featured in his own "This is Sportscenter" commercial. Check it out.

At first I was a little disappointed because it resembles the Albert Pujols "Machine" commerical so closely. But then I realized that if I'm seriously critiquing Sportscenter commercials I need to take a long hard look in the mirror and change a few things about my life.

Ovechkin himself is pretty good. His fake laughter is the best part of the commercial, followed by being pulled up with the rope by Varly. Overall, a pretty good spot.
