That’s not realistic CGI. It’s an actual guy who is part of a viking battle stunt show. Alex Yde has been practicing parkour for 12 years and it comes in handy for his work in the show. He’s been with Puy du Fou in France for three years playing different roles and decided to film one day’s adventures from his perspective.

viking-ship-fire-pit

This Viking ship fire pit a serious backyard accessory that’s made from 20 gauge metal and measures 40 inches in length and 16 inches wide. Etsy shop owner Imagine Metal Art added awesome details like the viking symbols in the sails, ores for extra balance, and a body that looks like a ferocious dragon. You can even request your own symbols at no extra cost.

May I suggest watching Game of Thrones and then going outside to burn some marshmallows… to death?

Check out more photos of this one of a kind Viking fire pit after the break…

Funko keeps managing to bring the pop culture awesomeness with their POP! line.

This time around, they’ve taken on the History Channel’s Vikings and the most recent season of American Horror Story: Freak Show.

I think Elsa Mars and Ma Petite may be my personal favorite, with the Tattler Twins a close second.

Head after the break to get a closer look.

Viking Table

When you’re planning an intense invasion or a script for a television show like Vikings, this is the conference table you need. Redditor Proteon shared a picture of this Viking longboat table, and it looks like an awesome place to conduct business. Proteon didn’t say where the table resides, but I bet any meetings held at it wrap up quickly because no one’s able to sit in those crazy chairs for long.

Then again, Vikings that complain about stiff backs won’t last very long in a cutthroat executive environment.

viking santa

Fox News is gonna have to come up with some new graphics in the “War On Christmas” stories, because Santa’s getting an origin story that’s rooted in Viking mythology, called Winter’s Knight.

Sony Pictures will be teaming up with Kon-Tiki producers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg and writers Ben Lustig and Jake Thornton to bring a script to life that’s loosely based on L. Frank Baum’s 1902 book “The Life And Adventures Of Santa Claus.” Presumably it features Santa as a Viking Warrior who fights yetis 364 days a year and then gives out their heads as presents for Christmas.

What? It would be so cool.

The 33 piece Valiant Viking Ship Solar Kit may teach kids about clean, alternative energy sources as it powers its way through the water—but it practically rapes the history books with regard to the design of actual Viking ships.
