John McEnroe’s Mask Design

Check out Hank's new mask that tennis great John McEnroe helped design on the second episode of "The Mask With Henrik Lundqvist."

“YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS”

“Vintage Rock” was the theme of Henrik’s mask with the legendary tennis champion, John McEnroe. Both Henrik and McEnroe wanted to capture the rock star energy of the 80’s visually on the mask, while also combining both their hobbies.

The mask features a tribute to great rockers such as Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, and the late Jimi Hendrix, displaying the duos shared love of music. The mask also features a skull designed by McEnroe which boasts the classic headband and big hair he was famous for in the 80’s.

The chin piece on the mask is a nod to both Henrik and McEnroe’s professions; featuring a tennis racket and goalie stick. The mask also has a tribute to New York, with a picture of the skyline and the saying, “Long Live The Rock,” highlighting the love that these two have for their city and classic rock-n-roll.

Henrik surprised McEnroe by adding McEnroe’s signature saying, “You Can’t Be Serious,” to the front piece. This mask highlights both men’s love of music, their hometown, and professions, while maintaining a vintage rock-n-roll feel.
