Thor Bjornsson aka "The Mountain" from the hit TV show "Game of Thrones" appears to be a Vikings fan. The 6-foot-9 396 pound mammoth human was in a Minnesota Vikings hype video on Friday.

In the video above, Bjornsson talks about the newly added “Vikings Skol Chant” which will debut during pregame festivities for the Vikings home opener at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday night.

The "Vikings War Chat" started with the Iceland men's national soccer team this year and Bjornsson is a native of Iceland and a big fan of the chant.

His message to Vikings fans, "We are all warriors of the north; We are all vikings. Skol Vikings."

If this doesn't get you pumped for game day, nothing will.
