Alex Ovechkin probably didn't need to hire entertainment for his lavish wedding this month. He could have just performed the Eastern Motors jingle for guests.

The Washington Capitals star, who married Nastasiya Ovechkina last year but threw a glamorous party in Moscow for friends and family on July 8, once did a karaoke version of the local auto dealer's famous song.

The video was posted back in 2009, with a youthful-looking Ovechkin in a gold Eastern Motors jersey clutching a hockey stick as a standing mic and singing his heart out.

Ovechkin has a few laughs doing the spot. Other Eastern Motors commercials from the time featured football players Clinton Portis, Ray Lewis and LaVar Arrington. Actors John Witherspoon and Kevin Pollack also did some ads.

But of all of the ads, it's Ovechkin's that is easily the most memorable.
