Every breath you take, Ryan Kesler will be watching you

Way back in October, we highlighted a fantastic pump-up video of Ryan Kesler by Bhavin Solanki. It was our first encounter with Solanki’s work and we were suitably impressed. So impressed, in fact, that we jokingly requested he create a pump-up video of Keslurks set to “Every Breath You Take” by The Police.

Somehow, we completely missed that someone else fulfilled our request. Colin Schmidt, who I assume is a scholar and a gentleman in addition to being a Bulie, did a superb job and it is everything that we hoped it would be. In honour of Kesler’s three-game point streak, it’s time to share it with you.

Is it just me, or does Keslurking take on a sinister aspect when paired with this song? Is it possible that, much like “Every Breath You Take” has been mistaken for a love song, Kesler’s lurking has been mistaken for a harmless joke? Also, when is Sean Combs going to appear in the background of other hip-hop artists’ interviews?

    Hilarious. You’re right, it is creepy. I always can’t help but wonder though if Raffi regretted stuffing that big plug in his lip. That interview always makes me cringe.

      Raffi is much loved, though, for being NOT AT ALL photogenic. See earlier PITB and especially his face shot from last season.

    Wondering if any iPhone users can get the embedded video to play? It won’t even open in the YouTube ap either.

    I think the creepiest bit is when Kes creeps up on Schneider in Lou’s mask. He looks down right axe-murdery!

    Yep…i lulzed. The only thing missing is the Hansen interview, with Kes working out and Mr Olympia posing.

      Sorry, I don’t think he’d done that one when I had made the video. If he had, my bad.
