As you might have noticed, we at Smug Nation are rather fond of cinematic references. And there are few better websites for movie buffs than FilmWise, where each week a set of “Invisibles” is posted: a still from a movie is shown with all characters’ faces or skin made transparent, and you must guess the movie based on clothing, props, surroundings, etc. We thought it would be fun to test your knowledge of scenes of Canuck-dom past and present—some famous, some not so much, from in-game footage to Behind the Lens stills. Here are the first six Canucks invisibles, including four present Canucks and two former ones, with faces, numbers, and nameplates carefully redacted (big stick tap to Aidan, who spent way too much time and hard work on this). Guess the name of the Canuck that has been invisible’d, not his totally visible teammate, dummy.
Tweet your answers (from left to right and top to bottom) with the hashtag #SmugInvisibles or email them to sn.smugnation(at)gmail(dot)com, and we’ll post the answers in a week when the new Invisibles are posted. Each week we will track your successes and failures—oh the failures!— and will post the top invisiblers at the end of the Canuck playoff stretch (in June!). We hope you enjoy!
