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."
