I love it when real life and entertainment collide for humorous effect, and social media is especially great for that.
My favorite example of this lately is Minnesota Viking Adrian Peterson’s now-famous post-game confession of his passion for orange peanuts.
This comes courtesy of Bad Lip Reading. If you haven’t seen their full set of YouTube videos, your life is not as rich as it could be.
Culture Jamming? Orange Peanut!
The best part of this is when Peterson was presented with a real-life orange peanut at an autograph session. And he was a great sport about it. Look at that smile.
Importantly, as USA Today notes, “The craftsmanship on the peanut is spot-on.” Excellent.
