(Video) Swedish Hockey Team’s Promo Video Features A Player Turning Into A Werewolf

Awesome. The transformation from man-to-supernatural-beast featured in the above video is a lot like the metamorphosis scene in An American Werewolf in London (one of the best scenes in horror movie history, mind you), only in Luleå, Sweden — and without the trademark whimsical handling of writer/director John Landis.

Be that as it may, the 2011-12 season promo video for Luleå Hockeyförening, a hockey club which competes in the Elitserien league, is all kinds of awesome, as is rare that a viewer discretion advised warning has to be spelled out prior to a team video.

But, as Wysh over at Puck Daddy points out, the official mascot of the club is a bear, so technically, it should be inferred that the player is turning into a werebear, not a werewolf, but that shouldn’t take away from the brilliance of it all.
