My interest in the NHL season checked out with the Caps, but here’s a quick recap of what’s going on: the Los Angeles Kings are up 3-0 against the New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup Finals, and, more importantly, Taiwan’s Next Media animation is recreating it as a Pro Bending battle between a bunch of guys dressed like the Burger King and the literal Devil. In pads.
This is a particularly good one, featuring the Devil using voodoo (which seems like a mixed metaphor), Fox Sports buying Kings broadcast rights with a treasure chest of gold and that moment pictured above where the Devil skates around the Kings and causes them to fall into the ice. You know, because hockey games are always held on frozen lakes. Oh yeah, and the part where the Kings survive drowning and freezing to death by commanding fog-spewing polar bears. Think we don’t talk about hockey enough? Tell the real Kings to ride in on polar bears.
Video is below. Stick around ’til the end for the Carol cameo.
Somebody put NMA in charge of getting the NHL’s ratings up.
