Branded Entertainment, Brett Hull, comic books, Television Commercials
Spot produced by The Patrick Company in St. Louis.

The “Golden Adventures of Brett Hull” comic books, written by Walt Jaschek, was the brainchild of The Patrick Company, a St. Louis promotion agency. They concocted a brilliant concept cross-promoting their clients McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, Brett Hull and the St. Louis Blues: a three-issue mini-series sold at regional McDonald’s for 99 cents. The agency also created this brilliant TV spot announcing the series. Enjoy it – and then feel free to peruse the comics themselves right on this site!
