Swedish mask painter for the stars, Dave Gunnarsson, released what he called a “sneak peek” of Philipp Grubauer’s new mask for the 2015-16 season on Monday afternoon. The bucket’s design, which Gunnarsson specializes in, is stunning. The promotional video of said mask, which Gunnarsson does not specialize in, is bizarre.
Like can someone explain what is going on here?

The mask is similar to Grubauer’s masks of the past, once again featuring vertical, Caps-colored bars going down the front. Grubauer’s nickname, Grubi, and the Caps’ old Capitol dome logo are painted on the chin.
My new mask! Sick! Thanks very much Dave 😊👍
Up next is Braden Holtby’s new mask, which I’m guessing is that white Caps bucket in the middle of this other teaser photo.

Great stuff. Just release the designs, Dave!
