EA Sports had Caps Russians and comrades in real life, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Dmitry Orlov, participate in an accuracy challenge to promote the videogame NHL19 (pronounced CHEL).
But there was one nefarious twist! Each “friend” had to destroy the other’s bobblehead (or figurine) with their shots.
Kuzy and Orly seemed to sickly enjoy this.

Evgeny Kuznetsov went first in the accuracy challenge. “I’m gonna hit right in his head,” Kuzy said of Ceramic Orly.
Kuzy decapitated all three of Dmitry’s OrBobbles in 14.82 seconds.
Hey, great job, Kuzy! Sikeeeeeee.
Now it was Orlov’s turn. “How many seconds he got?” Orlov asks someone off camera.
Orly starts firing. He struggles mightily to hit Kuzy’s bobblehead or birdman figurines.
Kuzy gave the camera a troll face.
Finally, Orly — after taking multiple visits to Pipe City — shatters Ceramic Kuzy. “YES!” he’s heard shouting.
But it’s worth noting Orlov was a good sport after losing. I’m just kidding. He destroyed all of Kuzy’s figurines with his stick.
When both players were asked who won, Orlov replied, “me!”
