I've heard a radio ad here in CT for a fireworks place in West Chesterfield, NH. It's just over the Connecticut River from Brattleboro, VT, along NH Route 9. I think it's called Area 51. I remember seeing a UFO looking fixture by its entrance while walking around there once. Funny to heard the ad distinctly mention "Take VERMONT Exit 3 and head east".

I have also seen ads for Phantom Fireworks in PA, along the interstates in NJ and NY near the border. One in particular was along I-80 West in NJ near Delaware Water Gap, PA.

I think I stopped there once.  I was driving up US 209 taking the back way from Lancaster, PA to the Lake George area, and I stopped at a place called Odd Lots in East Stroudsburg just after getting off PA 33.  They had quite the supply of fireworks, including bottle rockets, which you can't get in NH.  Looks like the fireworks store is in a separate building now.

This ad featuring two Caps players is airing regularly this year:

"That sounded stupid, didn't it?"—Kolzig, to the same reporter a few seconds later.

In Burakovsky's case, English is not his first language (he's Swedish), so I suppose that excuses a bit.

My wife says they sound like they're reading from cue cards and not doing it very well.
