Metal in Sign Language

File this under "Deaf Metal".

Tommy Fransson, 46, was hired by state broadcaster Sveriges Television (SVT) to provide sign language interpretation for deaf viewers of last weekend's Melodifestivalen music contest finals.
The challenging gig ended up paying big dividends for Fransson, however, with the unknown actor's unexpectedly passionate rendition of the song "Mystery" by Swedish metal band Dead By April catapulting him from relative obscurity to near instant celebrity.

Yes, I would have preferred a true metal band's performance in sign language, but this is still pretty awesome. Check it out below.
