Nick Popovich: Super Repo Man

All that cheap credit led too many rich folk to overextend themselves.

Now the credit is being crunched. Payments get missed. Banks need to repossess the big-ticket items: jets, helicopters, boats. That’s when they call Nick Popovich.

For the past three decades, Popovich has been one of a secret tribe of big game hunters who specialize in stealing jets from the jungle hideouts of corrupt landowners in Colombia, Mexico and Brazil and swiping go-fast boats from Wall Street titans in Miami and East Hampton. Super repos have been known to hire swat teams, hijack supertankers and fly off with eastern bloc military helicopters. For a cut of the overall value, they’ll repossess anything.

Henrik Zetterberg Lookalike NHL Ads

The first one took me by surprise. It looked like Zetterberg but seemed a little too raw to be from the NHL offices.

I got in touch with Greg DeLiso of Munrovia Pictures, the creative force behind the ad. He was very cool and uploaded his Zetterberg ads to AdHack.

Then the second Zetterberg ad landed — Henrik Zetterberg on a job interview.

Greg tells me there are a few more to come, which I’m looking forward to.

Stay tuned, sportsfans.
