Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Kurt Benkert took a shot against the Minnesota Vikings over Twitter after their crucial win over Lambeau.
It was the Packers who had the last word in their game against the Vikings, but it was Kurt Benkert who got the last laugh against Minnesota’s hilarious failure at a hype tweet.
After the Packers beat their rivals, 37-10, Benkert decided to have fun with a strangely animated pregame tweet that the team’s Twitter account sent out before the match.
In a “Let It Go” parody, a human figure built of cheese blocks crowns about Lambeau, cheese and Wisconsin. Then a figure wearing a Viking helmet lights up, a heater that melts the surrounding ice – even though the figure takes off on a Polaris snowmobile.
The message is completely unclear here, and Benkert was not alone in struggling to understand what all this meant.
Even Viking fans could not help but ridicule their team, comparing the animation to what one would find on a bowling alley monitor in the 1990s.
Kurt Benkert laughs at Vikings for failing on social media and IRL
The Vikings’ loss extended beyond the outdated animation as it removed any hope they had of coping with the post-season. The club could not afford to lose to the Packers or Bears in their January games, so now the 7-9 group has nothing but a medium-sized draft spot to anticipate over the next few months.
Although Kirk Cousins is out with COVID, it looks like Mike Zimmer is not particularly interested in seeing Kellen Mond take over next week versus the Bears. Meanwhile, Packers fans are celebrating another NFC North title before another expected victory over the Detroit Lions in January. 9.
Another week of victory for the 13-3 Packers, another week of losses for the 7-9 Vikings. At least with Minnesota eliminated from the playoffs, fans do not have to face another heartbreaking loss: on the field or on social media.
