Alternate headline: Awesome Hockey Bear Wrecks Sh*t In Space.
In possibly the greatest college sports intro video ever produced, the University of Alaska-Fairbanks hyped its 2007-08 hockey season with the adventures of its mascot bear, who … well, you’ll just have to see the video.
(Video following the jump).
From the YouTube description:
Hockey open w/ Polar Bear from Fairbanks, Alaska for the UAF Nanooks AKA “The Alaska Nanooks”. This is the intended directors cut with the original music choice, rejected by the UAF people for being “too 80’s” as if there is such a thing. Visual effects by Mike Martinez with help from Chris LeDoux of R!OT fame (on the moon explosion). Narrated by Brad F. Douglas. Written, Produced, and Directed by Mike Martinez.
Yes, the version you see above was actually rejected by the university. Oh what could have been. Cripes. I say extend it 90 minutes and open it in theaters.
Next up, Hockey Bear takes on global warming.
