Vancouver acrobat raises bar for Canucks fan videos, does one-handed handstand on it [VIDEO]

We’ve seen our fair share of fan videos here at Pass it to Bulis. We’ve seen singer/songwriters write songs and sing them, as is their modus operandi. We’ve seen rappers lay down tracks in support of the team. We’ve seen amateur filmmakers like David McKay blow us away with their vision and execution.

But, until today, we had never seen an acrobat paint himself in Canucks colours and scale a pole outside of Rogers Arena in support of the home team. This may be strangest and most incredible Canucks fan video you’ll ever see:

Anyone else feel fat? I feel fat. And after watching the way this guy does “towel power”, well, now I just feel like an ass for doing it right-side up. And with my hands.

That’s¬†Vancouver’s Darren Bersuk, a Canadian national gymnast and a seven-year veteran of Cirque Du Soleil, painting himself blue and green, scaling a post, and flexing his insane pecs for the Canucks.

I can safely say that I am incapable of this level of fandom.

Canuck fans: the bar has been raised. And then climbed. And then perched upon. And then twirled around with no regards for the laws of gravity and used as a support for spinning kicks to the faces of other team’s fans.

    I’ll never hear “bang bang bang bang” the same way again!

    The towel power is strong in him.

    The amazing Darren Bersuk knows that Rogers needs to bring back Electric Worry by clutch as the goal song!

    All the pec-flexing aside, I find it odd that this video starts with a slow-mo shot of Roger Neilson’s junk…

    Happy to hear Electric worry again. I like both Gold on the Ceiling and this, we should alternate
