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
(4) We call this gif RYAN KESLER, LORD OF THE POMMEL HORSE.
There are many gifs of this magical moment when Ryan Kesler decided that the best way to get to the puck was to vault over Pekka Rinne and the net, but this one is my favourite, if only because it totally looks like Rinne is giving Kesler a boost with his shoulder. It also makes Kesler’s swing look almost graceful and artistic. Most of all I love it because it strips it of all context, just showing Kesler climbing around, looking like a doofus. A graceful and artistic doofus. I love this gif.
(5) We call this gif KESLURK WORKOUT.
In case you were wondering, ladies and gentlemen, Kesler works out. It’s also entirely possible that he’s sexy and he knows it. And, every once in a while, he does the wiggle man. This gif does not sync perfectly with LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It,” but it doesn’t feel right watching it without putting it on in the background.
OKAY. Now let’s vote.
Voting closes at midnight.
WINNER — RYAN KESLER, LORD OF THE POMMEL HORSE (62.14%)Tags: unreal canucks gif tournament
