Twitter celebrated the life and times of Canadian comedic actor, John Candy today, he passed away 25 years ago. He is known for so many moments but a parody for Canadian movie, Face Off is largely forgotten. This SCTV gold saw Candy knocking kids to the ground. In “Canadian Bacon”, Candy made fun of the anthem and the flag. You have to be revered to get away with that.
