Video: Watch Sarah Palin shoot Alex Ovechkin with a hunting rifle

Greg Wyshynski

Warning: This satirical video does contain some graphic images and a violent scene of wild-game hunting that aired on TLC's "Sarah Palin's Alaska" recently. With that out of the way, here's one of the oddest places we've ever seen Alex Ovechkin(notes) show up in pop culture:

Click here or the image for the video.

The video comes from Tauntr.com, with the following description:

After finding out America wouldn't get to host the 2022 World Cup, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin decided to get rid of some pent up rage the most patriotic way she knows how -- hunting. Although her and her crack squad of assassins were out for some caribou, they stumbled across a much more rare and prized trophy, one native to Russia that must've somehow crossed the Bering Strait and invaded Palin's beloved home of Alaska.

By linking to this video from Tauntr, Puck Daddy in no way endorses the politics or potential presidential candidacy of Sarah Palin; nor the ideology of those who oppose her; nor the shooting of wild game; nor the shooting of dancing Russians that appear in commercials for discount auto dealers in the D.C. metropolitan area; nor the shooting of Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals or any NHL player; nor the state of Alaska, the Bering Strait and Russia; nor wascally wabbits, Mr. Elmer Fudd or another other standard-bearer of the hunting parody.

All that said, we're disabling comments on this post; just wanted to share a truly odd mash-up. Take in this macabre curiosity, and, like we did, just ask "why?"
