What is this I don't even: Off-Season Randomness

It's been that kind of off-season. We expected there to be big things, and there has been - unfortunately all of the big trades and free agent signings have been by people other than Ken Holland. It's hard as a Red Wings fan and it's hard as a blogger. Trying to find things to write about when it feels as though there's nothing to write.

We have to keep ourselves from going after each other's throats, to keep our criticism constructive and coming from a place of love and admiration for our Red Wings. And most importantly, we need to keep our spirits and morale up.

Which is why I'm happy to share with you 
Jiri Hudler's Korean Pop Star Doppelganger

This morning in my daily grind of browsing the Internet for porn employment and hockey news, I came across the following .gif and was awe struck.

Pictured: Jiri Hudler getting the news on the Detroit River of his Calgary contract
"Is that fucking Jiri Hudler!?" I exclaimed. I went over to Winging it in Motown to investigate and was in for the shock of my life. The bad news is that it isn't Jiri Hudler. The fantastic news is that it's his Korean Pop Star Doppelganger who goes by the stage name PSY and that was a clip from the music video to his International Internet hit song "Gangnam Style". And thanks to EuroCap over in the WIIM comment section, I was able to bask in the glory that is this video.

Brace yourself. 
You didn't brace yourself, did you?

There's no way this isn't Jiri Hudler's Korean Doppelganger. Let's look at the evidence. For starters he just really, really looks like Hudler. He's kind of stocky and chubby and baby faced as all hell. Second, his side ways, wobbly leg dance move thing is decidedly crab like. The whole thing, in fact, looks like he can sort of dance but not really, which speaks directly to Hudler's nickname of "Scuttles" over at The Production Line. 

Doin' the bull dance, feelin' the flow. Workin' it. Workin' it.
Next, while the song is for the most part in Korean, he occasionally attempts to speak English and it sounds almost like Hudler trying to speak English.

But most importantly is the fact that the video is full of bitches. I'm not going to say they're hookers because I don't want to unintentionally imply that Korean women or Asian women all look like hookers. Whether they're paid dancers and actresses, female hanger ons, or are in fact ladies of the night being paid for sexual services, the fact of the matter remains: DoppelHudler loves him some strange. The whole video is dedicated to the proposition of self-promotion and chasing tail. If that doesn't scream Jiri Hudler at you, then maybe this will.
The prosecution rests, your honor.
So I hope this has brought Red Wings fans some very confused laughs as well as maybe some bittersweet tears shed for the loss of Happy Hudler. As long as we keep our Gangnam Style as Red Wings fans, I think everything'll be okay.

Let's Go Red Wings


  1. I don't know how one could even brace themselves for this video. DoppelHudler spits on a child, bull dances with horses, kills two old men, forces two women to dance in a garbage storm and goes crazy over booty. So many thanks for this gold.

    1. I'm glad I could oblige. Thanks for the comment.
