As the locked-out NHL is the leading exporter of elite hockey players to the Kontinental Hockey League, the KHL is the leading exporter of bat-crap crazy, hallucinogenic music videos featuring those players.
Here's New Jersey Devils star Ilya Kovalchuk and some of his SKA teammates getting their groove on in a psychedelic clip featuring the SKA "sisters" that promotes their candidacy for the KHL All-Star Game. (The players, not the sisters … at least we think so.)
They, uh, do things a little differently over there for All-Star campaigns.
So remember, if you're planning to cast your ballot before the KHL All-Star Game, please consider casting it for:
Evgeny Artyukhin, as he strikes a cool pose or has crippling stomach cramps.
Maxim Afinogenov, a.k.a. someone who tried to help Alan Rickman rob the Nakatomi Building.
Vladimir Tarasenko's yearbook photo. And of course …
Russian John Cusack from 'сказать' a.k.a. "Say Anything."
