The closer we get to the season five premiere of 'True Blood,' the more promo clips and trailers HBO releases to maintain our interest. As if it wasn't bad enough that we've been without the sexy and shirtless Alexander Skarsgard. While most of the details have remained under wraps, one thing is for sure. We will definitely see more of Viking vampire Eric Northman's perfect body.

Watch the teaser trailer for 'True Blood' season five and see if you can spot the half-naked Skarsgard.

Although his pecs popped out for only a moment, die-hard fans of the show will tell you that the actor will definitely keep his shirt off for at least half the season. That's only an estimation, though.

After that famously sexy Rolling Stone magazine cover (partially shown below) and four seasons worth of ab shots, we've all come to accept the fact that it's simply better to watch Skarsgardon the screen when he wears next to nothing. See why below.
