When the Vikings played the Chicago Bears Monday night (Oct. 9), the mics at the sporting event potentially picked up an unexpected pop star’s name.
Fans all over social media are under the impression the Minnesota team used Justin Bieber’s name when calling out an audible. (For those uninitiated, “calling an audible” is an American football phrase that refers to when the quarterback changes a play at the last minute.)
While it could possibly be “beaver” instead of “Bieber,” as For the Win points out, the call sounds more like a certain singer than a bucktoothed semiaquatic rodent.
Decide for yourself with video and see fans’ reactions below.
