It’s official. Norwegian wolves have better taste in music than 13-year-old Norwegian boys, and in this case it’s a good thing. The boy who goes by the name Walter Eikrem tells a local Norwegian TV station (via NME) that he was walking home from school when he noticed a pack of four wolves ahead of him. The wolves stared him down the way Ke$hit glares at a bottle of shampoo. The look of MURDER was in the wolves’ eyes.
Walter was listening to Creed’s “Overcome” on his cell phone at the time and he got the idea to blare it at the wolves. Nothing puts the fear of catching butt warts on your ear drums like listening to Scott Stapp’s voice, so the wolves immediately headed for Creed-free pastures. Walter said, “When the wolves heard Creed they didn’t really get scared, they just turned around and simply trotted away. The worst thing you can do is run away because doing so just invites the wolves to chase you down.”
If Walter played Nickelback instead of Creed, those wolves would’ve offed themselves on the spot and he would’ve been jailed for animal cruelty, so he made the right choice. And I’ll let you know when Scott Stapp issues a statement saying that obviously the demon wolves ran back into the underworld when faced with the crystal clear voice of GOD.
