The Best Work You May Never See: Allen Americans' "Good Break"
Steve Chase directed and conceptualized this spot in which a doctor views in disbelief an x-ray showing a hockey player's forearm inverted into a bizarre contortion. Even more amazingly the player wants to immediately return to the ice--and does just that. This is one of six commercials that combines Chase's affinity for both humor and hockey.
