20. And handled fan love in the most perfect way possible.


21. When M Magazine had the genius idea of showing us how beautiful he is when all sweaty.

24. When he was the best thing about the Way Out West Festival and Sweden, in general.

30. When he proved that, although it seemed impossible, he is even sexier when he's tan.


31. And even more unreal in leather. YES PLEASE!

32. When he was in Cut Copy's music video and we turned into a literal puddle of drool.

33. When he successfully reached the South Pole (without bursting into flames) and we were more proud of him than we've ever been.

34. And when he told his family he was coming home and we wished it was to us.

We love you ASkars. <3
