In a beautiful mashup that only Mother Nature can provide, Winter Storm Thor hits the east coast of the U.S. this week, only three weeks into season three of Vikings.

History is taking advantage of this unlikely partnership - Thor is, after all, a myth dating back to the time of the Vikings - in order to promote Thursday’s episode of the show (above).

The characters of Vikings join in, while the dramatic spot warns against going outside: “Winter Storm Thor is falling. You will be snowed in, your house covered in snow,” it reads. “What better way to honor Thor than to catch up on Vikings before the new episode?”
