(NewsUSA) - Look up. It's a bird. It's a plane. No, it's Vikings Hiccup, Snotlout and friends -- from DreamWorks' popular "How to Train Your Dragon 2" -- parachuting into the Minnesota Vikings stadium to deliver the all-important game ball.

Sure, there have been some unique game ball deliveries throughout the history of sports, but few may please the entire family more than this.

In celebration of the Blu-ray, DVD and Digital release of the summer's biggest animated movie, "How to Train Your Dragon 2," the heroic Viking Hiccup and his friends will parachute into the Vikings stadium to deliver the game ball as his faithful dragon Toothless welcomes them onto the field.

Taking place at TCF Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis on Sunday, November 2 at approximately 11:38 am CT as the Vikings prepare to take on the Washington Redskins, fans will have to turn their attention to the sky to catch a glimpse of the show.

In case you've yet to see the movie, the thrilling second chapter of the epic "How to Train Your Dragon" trilogy returns to the fantastical world of the heroic Viking Hiccup and his faithful dragon Toothless. The inseparable duo must protect the peace and save the future of men and dragons from the power-hungry Drago when Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment releases the critically acclaimed hit on Blu-ray and DVD November 11.
