On June 14 he blocked a shot from Ronaldo, helping scrappy Iceland hold Portugal to a draw during its European Championship debut.
But as it turns out Icelandic goalkeeper Hannes Dor Halldorsson isn’t just useful on the pitch.
Way back in 2012 he actually directed the music video for “Never Forget” — Greta Salome’s Eurovision 2012 entry for Iceland.
As you’ll recall, the video captured the mysterious, somewhat sinister feel of Greta and Jonsi’s Eurovision 2012 number.
It saw two children walking through a series of sweeping Icelandic vistas — think snow, shadows, moon and mountains — as Greta and Jonsi vogued and pouted to the camera.
Hannes previously worked full-time at the Icelandic film studio SagaFilm and has reportedly been promised his job back once his soccer career ends.
Perhaps he can direct Greta to a Eurovision win in 2026?
Iceland has been making other musical waves at UEFA Euro 2016 this year as well.
The perfectly synchronized chanting from Iceland’s small, but spirited contingent of fans has left non-Icelanders in shock and awe.
That Iceland viking chant is still terrifying when there’s only 50 of them. https://t.co/c3CHpMU5Yz
