The NFL is seriously ridiculous in a way that’s kind of awesome. This summer we had all manner of ludicrous schedule reveals, as has become the norm, and now we’re getting extremely high-touch video packages for alternate helmets.
Zero shade on the Panthers social media team, because this is incredible. If you’re asked to make a video about the black helmets, why not have a little fun at the office and go all-out making something incredible like this?
It also helps that the helmets are really, really good. If you haven’t seen it already it’s a matte black helmet, with the electric blue panthers logo on the side and black grille. It’s a stark contrast from Carolina’s normal silver helmets, which really don’t do the rest of their uniform justice.
Carolina will wear all-black helmets for the first time in franchise history on Thursday night, something fans have been clamoring for over the last 20 years. Now it’s finally a reality.
