Justin Trudeau Just Gatecrashed A Wedding In A Kayak, Because He's That Kinda Of Guy

The 45-year-old has was heading along the Gulf Island's National Park Reserve when he spotted the newlyweds.


Remember that time Tom Hanks accidentally (definitely on purpose) photobombed a wedding while out on a jog in Central Park, New York and made us all dream of the day we'd walk up the aisle to the sight of Hanks jumping on an oversized keyboard playing out that 'Heart and Song' tune from Big?

Well, it appears Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau is going head-to-head with Hanks and fighting for our affections by gatecrashing a wedding in a kayak.


Because, you know, Canada.

On Saturday, Trudeau's personal photographer Adam Scotti tweeted a photo of Trudeau approaching a newlywed couple called Michelle and Heiner in his kayak to give them his congratulations.

The Independent reports the Prime Minister had been kayaking in the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve near Victoria when he spotted the couple and decided to paddle over to them to say 'hello', shake the hand of the groom, kiss the bride, and pose for a photo opportunity.

The bride later explained to CTV News of the moment she met Trudeau: 'He said, "I'm not going to take my shirt off this time', referring to previous Trudeau shirtless selfie appearance the prime minister made at a wedding ceremony last year.


Of course, Twitter soon began swooning.

Not long after the meet-and-greet, the 45-year-old politician accidentally fell out of his kayak, but continued to style it out in a pair of black sunglasses and a smile.

Classic Trudeau.
