Watch Rob Riggle Salute Non-Super Bowl Teams With Garth Brooks Parody
Prior to kickoff at Super Bowl LI on Sunday night (Feb. 5), actor and comedian Rob Riggle, along with a host of other famous faces, paid tribute to the NFL's 30 other teams with a parody of Garth Brooks' "Friends in Low Places."
Readers can press play above to watch the complete clip which, along with Riggle, features appearances from actors Aaron Paul, Ken Jeong, Malin Akerman and Kristen Bell; former NFLers Brian Urlacher and Terry Crews; and "Weird Al" Yankovic, DJ Khaled and John Travolta.
Country Artists Who Have Performed During the Super Bowl
"Like Garth in his song / Today our teams don't belong / But we're gonna love 'em anyway," Riggle, Paul and Urlacher sing near the beginning of the spoof, before Jeong explains, "'Cause we love teams with low rankings ..."
While most of the celebrities who appear in this short parody are lamenting the fact that their teams weren't competing in the Super Bowl in 2017, Travolta is trying to convince them to root for the New England Patriots: "I know these lowly teams, well, they are your favorites," he sings, "But why not just give in and root for the Pat'riots?"
Country music was all over at Super Bowl LI, which took place at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, and featured the Patriots and Atlanta Falcons: Luke Bryan performed the National Anthem prior to kickoff, while Johnny Cash's music was featured in two different ads.
