Tim Thomas Shoots Arbella Commercial in Full Pads on MBTA Bus

“Hey wait… was that Timmy T on the T??”

Yep.

Bruins goalie Tim Thomas wore his full pads and uniform in an ad for Arbella Insurance on Wednesday. He originally signed an endorsement deal in November to become the first athlete to represent the company. 

An MBTA spokesperson told the Metro that Picture Park Productions, along with Arbella, rented a T bus Wednesday for the commercial shoot. So, technically he didn’t walk onto public transportation in full pads. Oh well.

My guess is that the commercial will be super-lame. Is anyone more likely to buy Arbella Insurance because Thomas wore his uniform on the T?
