Jaromir Jagrís latest role may be savior of the Bruinsí power play woes (has a man-advantage that netted one shot on goal ever been as impressive as Bostonís first go-around with their new acquisition Thursday night against the Devils?), but in his homeland Czech Republic, he plays many roles for Sazkaís lottery campaign, including fire chief, pizza delivery guy, and Santa Claus. The above clip has to be the finest of the bunch, as a very happy Jaromir is hoodwinked into attending a birthday/bachelerotte party of some sort. Oh, Jaromir.

The pizza spot is a close secondÖ

Öas is his role as a super hero on the prowl.

Theyíre going to have to update this one with two new sweaters. Itís a pensive Jagr, though.

Iím not going to guess how much Jagr got paid for these 20 seconds of sleeping, but itís probably worth every penny.

A very tired Santa.

More Saint Nick: Hereís Jagr dressed up as Santa in a commercial of good tidings overseas. Bonus points for the creepy-sounding narrator.

During his time with the Rangers, Jagr also lent his funny bone to some humorous spots in New York.

This kid never learns.

Your move, Boston ad agencies. We need more.
