OTTAWA - Deception makes the heart grow fonder.

Nobody who has witnessed buds Ryan MacIntyre, Morgan Girouard and Phil Faubert exchange hugs could deny that.

Much of Canada, in fact, has watched the trio exchange both hugs and beer in a TV commercial for Molson Canadian -- a YouTube video of the ad has already garnered more than 1.7 million views.

You know, the one where two dudes travel to a remote part of Indonesia with a big, red beer fridge to surprise their Team Canada-loving buddy? That's them. They're real, and they're from Orléans.

It was kept very hush-hush.
