Blackhawks C Jonathan Toews’ All-Star promo video is totally ’80s and awesome
It’s hard to imagine anyone beating out Sabres center and Latvian powerhouse Zemgus Girgensons for NHL All-Star vote dominance, but Jonathan Toews and his fellow Chicago Blackhawks are certainly giving it a fun go.
In a totally radical All-Star vote promotion, the Blackhawks released this awesomely ’80s clip featuring Chicago captain Toews and some of his teammates — outfitted in tubular sweatbands and pastel colors — working up a sweat to a very "MacGruber"-style theme song in an effort to get fans to "exercise your right to vote (it’s the American way)" for their favorite Blackhawks.
To call it special is a gross understatement:
And while Toews (a.k.a. "the Canadian dream") shows impressive ability to frown on command, it’s Patrick Kane, sporting a salmon-colored droopneck, short shorts and striped athletic socks and winking on an elliptical that’s really got us hot and bothered (thanks to Bleacher Report for the GIF that keeps on giving):
