Mario Dumont interviewed Jonathan Hamel, Public Affairs Manager for Uber in Quebec.
“I, in 1995, when it happened, what would happen to my dad and Canadian the next morning?” I remember saying that very well. Canadian, so far we have seen it with playoffs, game number. Tomorrow is 6, so we wanted to put the Quebecars together and have a story that came to get them. ”
Represents Jonathan Hamel’s historic match December 2, 1995 Between the Canadian and Detroit Red Wings. At the time, Mario Tremble was the Montreal Canadians coach, and Patrick Roy the goalkeeper. If Patrick Roy wanted to be removed from the net, Mr. Tremble was slow to accept his request. On the bench, Roy walks past his coach, gives him an icy look and tells Ronald Corey, then team president, that he wants to trade. A few days later, he joined the Colorado Avalanche.
Mr. Hamel sent a statement to Mr. Roy and Mr. Tremble, who responded favorably. “When the ad came to them, they liked the concept and the humorous feel of it, and asked if any of them were interested. As you can see in the interviews, when the two found out they were moving forward, they wanted to meet again and meet again, ”he said.
The atmosphere relaxed on the day of filming. “At first there was a point where they were playing mini-hockey, they were at some distance, and they looked each other in the eye, and one of the two said ‘It’s been over 20 years’, it didn’t speak, we’m been looking at each other for a long time, now we’re a lot of minutes apart We’ll look into their eyes, ” everyone laughed. I thought they’d meet again. It might seem to us that two friends are compromising, and that’s the message they send to Quebeckers: They say to people: ” Look at your loved ones in the cold, feel free to contact them, it feels good. ” ‘
Jonathan Hamel has hinted that a second duo will be coming in the next few weeks, which is very interesting.
