Just when you think you’ve seen the most extreme fans, life gives you a Nashville-based balloon artist dressed up in a giant balloon costume of Pekka Rinne.

Sam the Balloon Man went viral earlier this week when he filmed himself walking down the street, dressed in a balloon costume in the shape of Pekka Rinne. It’s complete with a giant goalie stick (made of balloons, of course) and it’s sure something.

Check it out:
