Two Canadian junior hockey players have turned their boredom into a wonderfully weird hobby.
Ben Vikich, who plays for the Surrey Eagles, and Dean Allison who suits up for the Flin Flon Bombers, teamed up to recreate popular movie posters as a way to combat boredom and also entertain their friends. The duo, who both hail from Surrey, British Columbia, started with a remake of the “Stepbrothers” poster, and there was no turning back, as they then decided to make it into a weekly tradition.
“The picture was an instant hit among our friends on social media, and (we) have done a new photo every Monday since using the (Instagram and Twitter) hashtag we created,#MovieStarMonday,” Allison told HLNTV.com.
The 20-year-old Junior A players get creative on a budget, as well, following a couple of strict rules for each photo shoot they have.
“What’s different about our posters is that we do not use Photoshop, because we feel everyone could do that, as well as our budget is under $10, if we need to buy clothes or props from thrift stores,” Allison said.
From “The Notebook” to “The Wolf of Wall Street” to “Wayne’s World,” the hockey bros have remade some classics in the last four months. Their popularity has only continued to grow during that time, as well, as their Imgur post, which was only created days ago, has already received almost 450,000 views.
Take a look at some of their best work in the photos below.
