That is the best marketing they can come up with?  Eek.  And yes, that photo was part of the email.  I have no idea what’s going on in that video.  Scary stuff, kids.

I know, I know, by posting this the marketing people have won!  Damn you, Ed Snider.

Update: Apparently, ‘Dancin Shawny’ is a flat out celebrity.  I mean, the guy has a myspace page.  Pity us for not knowing.  A fine looking NHL blog named Barry Melrose Rocks has a rather lengthy post about our jolly old fat man in an orange suit.  Mr. Shawny became a fixture at Flyers games this past season because let’s face it, nobody could watch that shit they put out on the ice.  The following is apparently a video the Flyers put together towards the end of the season.
