I don’t know what else to tell you, 2020 is a strange year. It’s strange enough that the Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger is making a cameo in a video game. And now, he’s challenging NFL running back Dalvin Cook to an axe-throwing competition in the process.
As part of a promo for the new Assassins Creed Valhalla game. Bellinger and the makers of the game sent a custom axe to the Minnesota Vikings running back. Watch as Cook accepts Cody’s challenge to nail three bullseyes on ten tries.
The Dodgers star is already on #AssassinsCreedValhalla and wants to help the Vikings RB get on, too ?

Cook ultimately takes home the win after nailing three bullseyes, it’s just a shame we don’t get to see Belli give it a shot. Given that the Dodgers outfielder is still on the mend to repair a shoulder that frequently dislocates, we’re fine with him not throwing axes any time soon.
Bellinger makes a short cameo in the game as a character called Otta Sluggasson. He is described in the game as “a Dane with a knack for hitting rocks very very far.” and carries a bat around with him. A little too on the nose for the Dodgers outfielder?
Bellinger and Cook also briefly talk about being a World Champion at the beginning of the video. fresh off of a World Series with the Dodgers, Bellinger can certainly attest to what it’s like to be a champion in professional sports. Perhaps video game champion is the next part of his list of things to conquer. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was released on November 10th and comes with a Mature gameplay rating.
