Rob Riggle, John Travolta + More Parody Garth Brooks’ ‘Friends in Low Places’ [Watch]
While Super Bowl LI was on everyone's mind over the weekend, actor and comedian Rob Riggle decided to take a different approach to the big game: Riggle joined forces with a slew of famous faces, including John Travolta, Kristen Bell and others, to pay tribute to the NFL teams that didn't make it to the final showdown.
The hilarious two-and-a-half-minute parody of Garth Brooks’ “Friends in Low Places” also boasted appearances from actors Aaron Paul, Ken Jeong and Malin Akerman, as well as former NFL players Brian Urlacher and Terry Crews. Even musicians “Weird Al” Yankovic and DJ Khaled popped up in the parody.
“Like Garth in his song / Today our teams don’t belong / But we’re gonna love ’em anyway,” Riggle, Paul and Urlacher sing during the spoof, before Jeong explains, “‘Cause we love teams with low rankings.”
DJ Khaled found himself making it rain in the clip as he flashed stacks of money to Super Bowl watchers, while Travolta joined Riggle on stage to sing in a venue that looked like one of Nashville's famed honky tonks. Watch the complete clip above.
Country music was also represented elsewhere at Super Bowl LI. Luke Bryan kicked off the game with the National Anthem, while Dustin Lynch, Lady Antebellum and Kenny Chesney were on hand at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, to watch the New England Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons.
