GREEN BAY — A viral video of Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers riding in the back of a pickup truck with a case of Bud Light near Lambeau Field has been confirmed, by the MVP himself.

A video posted by @amberdanette on TikTok spread through social media showing Rodgers in the back of a GMC pickup, holding the case of beer in greetings to the people following along in a separate car. The pickup was turning onto Oneida Street next to Lambeau Field.

Pat McAfee on his show played the clip and wondered if that was actually the Packers QB.

Rodgers responded on Twitter Friday.

"Ya that was me," Rodgers tweeted. "Listen to @OfficialAJHawk and it was @DavidBakhtiari‘s truck and soggy beer cases. How ya doin keep it movin@PatMcAfeeShow."

On the show, AJ Hawk said that route is often taken by players to and from practice. "That’s the little drive you have to make in your pads, you just hop in the back of somebody’s truck. They had a case of Miller [sic Bud] Light, why not flash it to the people filming," AJ Hawk explains to McAfee.
