Topless Kesler Now a Staple of Canucks Web Content

Here’s the Canucks.com Reid Report, featuring a Dan Hamhuis interview in which Ryan Kesler, again, drifts into the frame, toplessly nourishing himself.

If you’re keeping score at home, that two Canucks.com videos this week to feature creepy, topless Ryan Kesler. Is he going for the topless hat trick? Is Kristin Reid aware that he’s committed to bogarting her interviews?

Ryan Kesler keeps forcing himself on interviews while neglecting to force shirts on himself.

I say yes. Though this one is certainly more natural, it still feels strangely intentional. I suspect this is some sort of dare, perhaps inspired after the team spent an evening watching Andy Samberg videos on Youtube, and felt particularly inspired by People Getting Punched Right Before Eating? Expect topless Ryan Kesler to keep popping up unexpectedly while Kristin Reid interviews his teammates.
Seriously, topless Ryan Kesler is the new cigar guy.
Thanks to Kristin for the tip.

Edit: apparently, the Kesler cameos are coming in waves. Here he is, casually wearing sunglasses indoors in the background of a Chris Higgins interview, via CDC poster tryptic.

    I am totally fine with this development. Keep those shirtless pics coming! (wonder how his wife feels about this though…)

    She's probably like, "If your friends dared you to jump topless off a bridge, would you do it? And stop peacocking for Kristin Reid."

    I agree with Miss Canuckle, Kesler can take shirtless pictures/have shirtless interviews/lurk in the background shirtless all he wants.

    I think it might be related to his selling underwear.

    Maybe, but it seems so counterintuitive to RK17 promotion. You too can look like Ryan Kesler, by not owning any shirts!

    He has definitely got a guilty look on his face while he's doing it. Precocious even!

    I don't think it's a challenge. He looks way too showoff. The video editors managed to cut the scene off as soon as he shows up! haha

    Hmm, maybe just trying to increase the numbers in a different demographic, say 16 -120 year old women
