GLENDALE, AZ - APRIL 14: NHL commissioner Gary Bettman speaks during a press conference before Game One of the Western Conference Quarterfinals between the Detroit Red Wings and the Phoenix Coyotes during the 2010 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Jobing.com Arena on April 14, 2010 in Glendale, Arizona.

Globalization is a real thing. The NHL lockout has been such a mess that a news outlet in Taiwan put together an animated video summarizing the twists and turns in negotiations. The video was produced by Next Media Animation and features Sidney Crosby and two other players who look to be Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos and Maple Leafs winger Phil Kessel. Gary Bettman and Donald Fehr also make appearances in the video with Bettman being portrayed as the personification of evil. The piece, titled “NHL Lockout: Rollercoaster ride continues,” begins with the players on a rollercoaster that is suddenly derailed by a giant iPhone — a reference to the NHL leaving Steve and Donald Fehr a voicemail to reject the NHLPA’s latest offer. Bettman is also seen driving a Zamboni and wielding a vacuum as a weapon. Check it out in this bizarre, yet accurate, video detailing the lockout.
