Pro-Canucks, Anti-Bruins propaganda uses Jon Stewart’s cynicism for 10-minute diatribe (Video)

Greg Wyshynski

In case you were wondering about the severity of the psychological scarring suffered by some Vancouver Canucks fans after losing the Stanley Cup to the Boston Bruins: It apparently runs "I'll make a 10-minute propaganda piece with clips from 'The Daily Show' to demonize the Bruins" deep.

That said: This is wickedly entertaining, intercutting between the Bruins' words and deeds in a way that paints them as walking contradictions.

Punctuating the whole video essay: Clips from "The Daily Show" (and one hilarious "King of the Hill" cameo) that were so meticulously chosen and brilliantly deployed that a few YouTube commenters actually believed Jon Stewart had taken a position on the Canucks vs. Bruins feud.

(We will note the irony in using Stewart's epic takedown of FOX News to make a point in a one-sided trashing against the opposition.)

It's the greatest hits of the rivalry, like finger biting and Brad Marchand's "hip check", with other Bruins' foibles tossed in: Paging Dr. Recchi and the Lucic vs. Miller hit.

From the nimble editing fingers of "MAKAVELI719696", here's the Daily Show/Anti-Bruins mashup that would be a cause for prosecution if SOPA passes:

By far the greatest comment on this video:

"Jon_ Stewart is a pompous ass. do you know how much charity work the bruins do? this is why i hate the media."
