Watch EA demonstrate the physics of the NHL 13 Hercules Check bug

EA Sports took to its motion capture studio to explain the "real-world" physics behind one of NHL 13's more humorous bugs.

Known as the "Hercules Check," the bug was originally captured in a viral video, which shows center Sidney Crosby flying off into the stands after defenseman Zdeno Chara hits him with a super-charged check.

EA responded with a good-humored video about their incredible real-time physics and how they work hard to create "the most authentic experience possible."

NHL 13 is now available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
