Today marks the 25th anniversary of John Candy’s passing and Ryan Reynolds has created this wonderful memorial video featuring a collection of the actor’s iconic characters and movie scenes.
Working alongside Candy’s kids, Chris and Jen, Reynolds has created the two-minute video to celebrate the ‘comedic genius’ and fellow Canadian’s work in classic movies from the ’80s and ’90s like Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Spaceballs, Uncle Buck, Cool Runnings and Splash, among many more.
You can watch the touching tribute here:
It’s the 25th anniversary of John Candy’s passing. We cooked up a small tribute to a comedic genius and Canadian hero. If you haven’t seen much of his work, take a look at his films. He was a treasure. Thanks to @chriscandy4u and @therealjencandy. ?? pic.twitter.com/dHvuviKnBs
