Watch a Canuck fan interview interrupted when a dad crashes a stroller into a lamppost [VIDEO]

Fan, interrupted.

Sometimes when there’s a lot to talk about in the world of Canucks hockey, our employers at the Vancouver Sun will send the in-house video team outside to get some fan insight on the chatter of the day, and considering the inflammatory events of the Canucks’ home opener, Sunday night was one such time. Sun videographer Mark Yuen — director of viral sensation “Call the Union” — was dispatched to Rogers Arena to capture fan sentiment regarding the Canucks’ goaltending controversy.

But instead, Yuen captured something a little more unique. During an interview with a Canucks fan in an orange tuque, a family of three passed by. The interview was interrupted when the father, who was pushing a stroller with a kid in it and obviously didn’t have his eyes on the road, walked the stroller directly into a lamppost.

According to Mark, “The father hits the bottom of the lamp post, which is dome shaped, and the stroller tips over. Hence the loud bang.” You can watch the stroller tumble into frame.

I love the reaction by the orange-hatted interviewee. “Whoa. Get you get that on camera? That was great … I wanna watch that later.” The guy is a natural.

But the best reaction is the child’s mother. I was initially disappointed that our buddy Mark didn’t pan to the scene of the incident — way to blow it, Mark (although he claims he was too busy looking to check that the baby was okay). But he does manage capture the Mom’s righteously furious “Are you kidding me?!”

It is the highlight of this clip. Keep watching them, though, as she muscles him off the stroller as they walk away. That’s just reasonable. No way that guy gets to keep driving. He just crashed his kid into a lamppost.

I think it goes without saying that this is the best Canuck fan interview that has ever occurred.

    I smell a Stroller Controversy coming on!

    Quick! Trade the Dad! He CLEARLY chokes at crucial moments, forcing the Mom to step in and prove how clutch she is. What the hell do we need TWO highly paid parents for, anyway? We could be spending that money on newer, shinier, cuter kids, ones that know how to stay upright even when the stroller is falling out from beneath them.

    TRADE THE DAD, Gillis! TRADE THE DAD!!

    I hear Toronto’s looking for a new Stepfather….

    Oblivious Dad’s vision is only rivalled by Aaron taps stick on ice to feel where he’s going Volpatti.

    That baby is a future Mason Raymond. Some day they’ll be telling Ron McLean “he’s been falling down since before he could walk” on Hockey Day in Canada. It’ll be like the video of Gretz playing floor hockey in his living room as a toddler.

    pretty sure she tossed out an extra loud “Are you kidding me!?” because she knew the camera was rolling. Wanted to make sure everyone knew the dad was the d-bag, not her.
