With Stefon Diggs and Sam Bradford out this Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings are going to need all the help they can get when they face the Green Bay Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium. To assist them will be the 6-foot-9, over 400 pounds, Iceland native and “Game of Thrones” star Thor Bjornsson.

Rochelle Olson of the Star Tribune has reported that Bjornsson will be blowing the gjallarhorn before the start of the game and leading the Skol chant. The Skol chant was originally called the Vikings war chant, but Minnesota decided to change the name before they debuted it last year during the inaugural season at U.S. Bank Stadium.

To give you an idea of what this chant should sound like, here is a YouTube video of over 10,000 fans doing the Vikings war chant. We have work to do.
