No 'Superstar Treatment' for Car Dealership

It seems that the Penguins organization isn't a fan of the latest A&L Motor Sales commercial featuring Max Talbot.

According to WTAE-TV news, the organization made the dealership pull the TV ad. A&L apparently didn't get permission to use the official Penguins logo in the commercial which features several people wearing Talbot's jersey (and depicts the logo).

"Obviously, they have a little bit more stake in it than we do. So, you know, we have a good relationship with the Penguins and we want to do what we could to keep that relationship going with the Penguins and the organization," said Alex de Francisco, of A&L Motor Sales.

They plan to reshoot the commercial minus the Penguins logo this time.
