Hear Jannik Hansen’s hilarious reaction to Pamela Anderson visiting the Canucks’ dressing room

A week ago, we shared with you Jannik Hansen’s unique response to spotting Gene Simmons at the glass during a warmup skate, when the Danish winger went full honey badger, ignoring all manner of decorum and asking the KISS frontman to sign his stick then and there. It was in keeping with what we’ve come to learn about Hansen over this season and last: that dude don’t care. If he sees something he wants, be it a puck or an autograph or a plate of delicious cheeseburgers (speculation), he’s simply going to take it.

That in mind, can you imagine Hansen’s reaction if he had known local legend Pamela Anderson was at Tuesday night’s game? He wouldn’t have just approached her for an autograph; he’d have leaped into the stands mid-shift, thrown her over his shoulder and climbed into the rafters. Unfortunately for Hansen, he didn’t learn about Anderson’s visit — not only to the game but to the Canucks dressing room — until it was too late.

But his reaction was still money. Here it is, courtesy our pals at the Team 1040:

“WHAT.”

I love that Hansen doesn’t even bother trying to act like his brain isn’t exploding at the thought of being in the same room that Anderson was just in. Clearly, they got Baywatch in Denmark.

Okay, I’m resisting the urge to make a million Jannik Hansen stick-lifting jokes. Instead, here’s the best animated gif from Canucks superskills.

Stop it.

Never change, Jannik Hansen.

    He wanted to get his stick signed. Hint hint nudge nudge.
    And now I’ve got this hilariweird image in my head of Jannik jumping off the exercise bike and running into the locker room to try and find Pam Anderson.

    Sometimes celebrity culture confuses me. I just took a look at Pam’s wikipedia page and the thing is, she really hasn’t done anything since her glory days on Baywatch in the 90′s. She’s posed nude for some magazines, released a couple of (apparently) forgettable books, made cameos on a few tv shows, done Walmart autograph tours, and was actually working as a stripper in Paris. Yet for all of that, she got a star on the Canadian walk of fame and the fact that she went to a hockey game is a Big Deal. Felt like they mentioned her presence at least 5 times throughout the game last night.

      well, we could talk about performative gender, semiotics, Baudrillard’s vision of the hyperreal, the current sexuality crisis occurring in response to shifting norms re: what it is acceptable to desire and the corresponding nostalgia for the sex-and-power dynamics of the late 80s – early 90s, but I think more directly the point is: people who like hockey also often like breasts, and/or want everyone to know they like breasts.

        I would like everyone to know that I like breasts. I mean, no more than normal. Or less than normal. I guess what I’m trying to say: I’m normal.

          A fine illustration of my point with regards to normativity, hetero- or otherwise! Now if only John & John had phrased it that way, no further discussion would be required.

    i think this might be the first audible recorded example of the common internet dialectal “WHATtt.” you can hear him hold the t. truly we have all experienced something unique here today! i didn’t even realize you could hold a t.

      The dark arts of the Danish Ninja are comprised of an extremely formidable repetoire of skills and secrets… including holding t’s.

    That gif is amazing. I have no clue what was really going on (and boy would I like to know) but it looks like Hansen is like, “Oh, you!” and Booth is giggling shyly.

    he’s definitely the new samuelson (argh spelling) when it comes to golden interview clips. in fact he’s way better when it comes to content.

    The Danish Ninja’s high pitch voice is what makes it all. That’s good stuff.

    There is nothing shameful about recognizing oneself as a” hineybadger”.
    Nothing.
