Introducing the Unreal Canucks GIF Tournament, a quest to determine which Canucks GIF is the greatest in existence. We’ve narrowed it down to 32 candidates, divided into four divisions then seeded, one through eight. Now we need your help. An important note: this isn’t just something to do while the players and the owners waste time bickering over who should get what’s left of the money they’re burning — it’s also a super-important initiative. After all, if we don’t do this, how else will we know? AND WE MUST KNOW.
UNREAL CANUCKS GIF TOURNAMENT — FIRST ROUND, KESLER DIVISION
(1) We call this gif LORD OF THE DANCE.
This gif is the universal symbol for joy on Canucks forums and blogs across the internet. This is the happiest gif ever, even though it looks like Kesler is desperately looking for a fist-bump and no one will hook him up. If dictionaries could have animated pictures and “happy dance” was a word and not a phrase, this gif would appear beside it in said dictionary. This was the dance that Snoopy was trying to do all along. He’s basically the reverse-Michael Flatley, only moving his arms.
(8) We call this gif BURROWS WASN’T EVEN PAYING ATTENTION.
This gif is probably going to get curb-stomped in this match-up, but I love it dearly. It’s not because Alex Burrows says a naughty word: it’s everything surrounding it. First off, as the name implies, Burrows isn’t even paying attention to what is happening on the ice, making it seem like he is very, very pumped about the slightly shredded tape on the blade of his stick. Then there’s unimpressed Ryan Walter, who reacts to all the celebrating on the bench by frowning disapprovingly. And then Mats Sundin turns around and GOODNESS GRACIOUS HE’S SO OLD. He’s so old, you guys.
OKAY. Now let’s vote.
Voting closes at midnight.
WINNER — LORD OF THE DANCE (72.85%)Tags: unreal canucks gif tournament
