Close a JIRA issue from Bitbucket via git commit

I know I can reference a JIRA issue from a git commit which will create bidirectional links between the issue and the commit message. I would like to be able to affect the status of the issue (close it, reopen it, etc.) from a commit just like I can in Bitbucket issues. Is this possible?

As far as I know the only way you can do this is by creating a commit hook that looks for specific project key numbers and closes them by making a REST API call to JIRA to change the status.
