Luckily for Walter Eikrem, it does not appear Norwegian wolves care for Creed. The 13-year-old was walking home from the school bus stop in the town of Rakkestdad this week when he noticed something on the hillside near his family?s farmhouse, according to Germany?s Der Spiegel magazine. At first he thought they were dogs, but he soon realized they were wolves ? four of them ? the magazine said, citing Norway?s TV2. The boy, remembering that his mother had told him never to run from wolves, pulled the headphones out of his mobile phone and cranked up the volume on the tiny speakers. He was listening to ?Overcome? by Creed, an arguably Christian rock band, and apparently, the wolves were not fans. (Initial reports indicated Walter shooed the wolves away with a Megadeth song, but the blog at Gibson guitars cleared up the confusion.) ?They just turned around and simply trotted away,? he told the TV station, according to Der Spiegel. ?The worst thing you can do is run away because doing so just invites the wolves to chase you down … but I was so afraid that I couldn’t even run away if I’d wanted to.? To be fair, Walter was yelling at the top of his lungs and wildly flailing his arms, so it?s tough to say exactly what made the wolves decide the boy might not be delicious. His mother told the local paper that she was going to pick her son up from school because she knew there were wolves in the area, but she got carried away shopping, Der Spiegel reported. ?I have a completely guilty conscience,? she said. ?The previous evening, we saw three wolves on the edge of the forest when we were putting our horses in their stall. The horses were panicky.? Um, thanks, mum? ? Well, OK, scratch that. Perhaps sarcasm is a little harsh for the woman who taught young Walter never to run from wolves.
What the? The wolves ran from a kid with a cell phone? Are you serious? This does not say good things about the rep the wolves have worked so hard to build.
This does not bode well for wolf t-shirt sales.
They probably just moved on over to the next town where someone was holding a Viking Death Metal concert.
Why was the mother allowed to go shopping? Fucking bitch.
Unless she was shopping for groceries then it’s all right.
Next time I run into some feisty wilds animals I’ll play them music
lollllll oh the serious irony.
To be fair if someone started playing Creed I’d like to be as far away as possible too
Wolf pack alpha male: "Fuck that, I’mma betcha that kid tastes as bad as his taste in music."
Wolf pack: “Word.”
wolf pack: holy shit those vibrations coming from that thing is suicide, humans are fucking stupid, let’s split.
Well, I guess I would let the wolves attack me rather then hurting my ears and pride by playing Creed let alone letting people find out that I have them on my mp3 player…
poor wolves, must have been painful for them to go through that.
“His mother told the local paper that she was going to pick her son up from school because she knew there were wolves in the area”
So everything from Metalocalypse was true after all.
Imagine if he blasted Nickelback. Wolves would fear man forever.
It’s like Mars Attacks, except without the heads exploding… or did they?
In other news: Water is wet; sun warms planet.
As I see it.
really? wimpy ass wolves(maybe it’s just this bunch)!
Listen to this, in its entirety, before you start shit talking wolves.
I dare you.
As I see it.
Are you sure it wasn’t one of my songs?
Nah. If that were the case, the wolves would’ve just lamented over how you’re a fucking perpetrating ass FRAUD that somehow manages to get the best produced beats. The boy could’ve snuck into his home at that point.
