This Hockey Team's Pregame Show Will Melt Your Brain

Posted: Updated:

The hockey may be more professional in the NHL, but when it comes to pre-game shows, you'd be hard-pressed to trump the Halifax Mooseheads, of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

The team posted its jaw-dropping introductory video online Tuesday, and the footage immediately proceeded to go viral.

Instead of the usual swirling lights, thumping bass and radio announcer voice reading out players' names, the Mooseheads have turned to 3D projection mapping. Yeah, that's a real thing.

In a span of just over three minutes, a video projected onto the rink simulates the ice breaking apart, refreezing and turning into a dance club. Then the ice becomes a screen for a giant, high-def pump-up video montage of Mooseheads accomplishments, before finally transitioning into the classic player introductions we've all come to expect.

WATCH the mind-bending pre-game show, above.
