Guys, if you've ever wanted to do something romantic for your girlfriend, well you're shit out of luck because this guy just raised the bar to a level we will never be able to achieve. Brian Flynn decided to surprise his girlfriend last week by having an artist paint them as Disney characters. Brian hired and artist named Dylan Bonner (No, not boner. Stop being immature.) to recreate famous Disney moments so that he could essentially turn his girlfriend into a real Disney princess.
If that wasn't enough, this guy even had an awesomely romantic quote to explain the project. Brian claimed that he and his girlfriend Manini love Disney movies so much that he wanted their relationship to be as epic and timeless and the animations they grew up on. To be clear these aren't' photoshopped and the artist didn't merely paint a different person's face over a Disney print. They are actual paintings made from scratch without any tracing whatsoever. Brian sure has made it a lot more difficult for the rest of us guy to be appear romantic, flowers and chocolate just aren't going to cut it anymore.
Here are a couple of picture of the happy couple:
And here's the two of them painted as Disney characters:
So guys if you want to show your sensitive side, share this article with a girl on Facebook
Among the many wonderful things that make being a Montrealer a fun and authentically Canadian experience is — you guessed it — hockey.
From its speed and tradition to, of course, its fandom, hockey is (in the opinion of most who live in the Great White North, anyway) one of the greatest sports. Montreal Canadiens fans will know this to be especially true.
But just because our hockey season may look a bit different this year, doesn't mean we can't continue to celebrate by making our homes feel like we're at a Habs game IRL.
Every Molson Export FANatic Saturdays will kick off with a Habs-themed trivia hour from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m EST, hosted by Bell Centre's in-game host Michel Kunta, and it's all about putting your Habs knowledge to the test.
First-place winners will score a $250 gift card to Tricoloresports.com, the Montreal Canadiens' official store. Second place will land a $100 gift card and third place gets a $50 gift card.
Advance registration is required so be sure to snag your spot to flex those know-it-all muscles and ultimate bragging rights.
Q&A Presented by Molson Export
Next, get ready to put those thumbs to work because after trivia is a live Twitter Q&A starting at 6:00 p.m. with special contributor Marc Dumont, formerly from The Athletic.
The session will, naturally, focus on all things Habs, acting as a "week-in-review" where fans can weigh in on what's happening with the team now (in 280 characters or less, of course).
Each Saturday one lucky fan will receive a special prize from Molson Export.
To participate, fans need to submit a question to the Q&A via Facebook or Twitter. Whichever fan has their question selected and answered by Marc during the Q&A will be Le Vrai Fan and get a retro Canadiens jersey!
Following the Twitter Q&A is a 30-minute DJ set live on Twitch. Kickstarting the first FANatic Saturday on April 3 is DJ Special K. You can also look forward to the likes of DJ Shash'U (April 10), Pat Boogie (April 24), TIZI (May 1) and Fafa Khan (May 8).
Whatever your musical flavour, get ready to kick that pregame party into high gear because each DJ will be cranking the tunes until the puck drops.
All you have to do is tune into Montreal Canadiens' social channels to catch a glimpse of the featured star cheering on the Habs.
To date, celebs like David Hasselhoff, Bob Saget, Erin Andrews and Bruce Buffer have been featured. It's anybody's guess as to who will check in with fans next, but one thing's for sure: it's always well worth the wait.
Think everything from jerseys and player T-shirts to headwear, socks and pyjamas. New items exclusive to the weekend event will be offered each week (this Saturday, April 3 you can get 25% off selected hoodies and sweaters), so be sure to check back often for official Habs gear you're going to want to make your own.
Wherever you choose to celebrate the Habs every week, tune in to Molson Export FANatic Saturdays from 5:00 p.m. EST for trivia, special programming, cash prizes, celebrity check-ins and more every single Saturday that the Montreal Canadiens play, home or away.
