Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

How to describe Canada’s living national treasure Don Cherry? For some tasks, dear reader, mere words seem pathetically insufficient.


To explain the world’s most recognizable hockey commentator would require the combined efforts of grand opera, Expressionist painting, and interpretive dance, at the very least.

A bullet-headed blowhard, a conservative who occasionally makes Stephen Harper look like Karl Marx, a man as full of opinions as Algonquin Provincial Park is full of moose nuggets, he’s the man we all love to hate, but he is also, without question, the most sartorially splendid being this beige-on-beige nation has ever produced.

Behold the wonder that is Don Cherry.

You can thank the Canucks fan at Sweet Flow and Majestic Beardies for this glorious GIF, which has a paltry six notes.
