A moment before the Green Bay Packers game started Sunday is going viral. It started normally with the singing of the National Anthem, but the singer got a little mixed up.

Frank Hermans was a last minute fill in for a country singer who got snowed in on the east coast. Hermans said he got a call at the last minute to fill in. He said it was a dream come true until he forgot some of the words.

"I am singing right in the camera. The flag is coming out. A lady falls, a guy falls on top of her. I kind of lost it. My mind just, and I'm like, 'Oh my god. What's going on. Oh no,'" said Hermans. 

Hermans was focused on keeping his place in the song for the planned fly-over of the fighters jets.

"So I go 'La, la, la' instead of making up words," said Hermans. "I own it, man. I was wrong. I screwed up. I would love the opportunity to redeem myself." 

Hermans said he's sung the song hundreds of times and practiced it that day on the field. They have always gone perfect until Sunday.
