Jason Momoa — Scaring Everybody With Maori War Dance

Exclusive 060513_jason_momoa_launch_v2Jason Momoa“s character was killed off “Game of Thrones” WAY before it became trendy … but he”s keeping up with one CRAZY-INTENSE cultural tradition that would make even a Dothraki warlord quake in his sandals.

Check out Khal Drogo (middle) doing the “Haka” — the traditional ancestral war dance of the indigenous Māori people — at the beach in Auckland, New Zealand on Sunday.

Momoa hails from Hawaii but says he”s obsessed with Polynesian culture … he even did the Haka dance — in character — as part of his GoT audition.

Momoa”s no hack at the Haka … but if you want to see something REALLY scary, check out the New Zealand national rugby union team — which performs the dance to scare the crap out of opponents before matches.
