New Van Fan is a web-series that follows the adventures of long-time Canucks fan Dan as he attempts to bring novice Canucks fan Andreas up to speed. The whole thing may or may not be an excuse to point out the inherent silliness of this fanbase — we’re not quite sure. Have an idea for an episode? Suggest it in the comments.
Andreas has come a long way in his Canucks fandom over the last month or so. In fact, with his innovations like the Snepsts Day and the Alain Vigneault Gum Game, it’s easy to forget that he’s a complete newbie. This episode, then, is a good reminder, as Dan gives Andreas a more complete introduction to the Sedin twins and their wizardry and Andreas discovers for the first time that they, like him, have red hair.
Enjoy episode eight of New Van Fan, where we discover that when it comes to the Sedins, magic isn’t just on the ice — it’s also in the air.
“I’m magical too?”
No, Andreas, no you are not. Sorry.
The biggest revelation in this episode is that Andreas speaks fluent Swedish, which means he has more in common with the Sedins than just the colour of his hair.
I love that the tissue paper in Dan’s gift bag is blue and green. Very appropriate. And what’s in the bag? A framed picture of the Sedins. For Andreas, who has apparently never seen the Sedins up close in his month of being a Canucks fan, it’s love at first sight. No, seriously, he’s enraptured with the red-headed Swedes and really, who wouldn’t be? They’re Swedish twins. I thought they were just a myth.
