Funnyman Rob Riggle channeled his inner Garth Brooks for a pre-Super Bowl parody of “Friends in Low Places” on Fox. Instead of staying true to the lyrics of Garth’s No. 1 song, Rob and his celebrity crew lamented the respective seasons of their favorite NFL teams that didn’t make it to the Super Bowl.

Rob enlisted the help of his friends from the world of music, TV, film and sports for the bit, including Aaron Paul, Brian Urlacher, Ken Jeong, Paul Sheer, Terry Crews, Weird Al Yankovic, Malin Akerman, Kristen Bell and DJ Khaled.

“Sure I’ll watch today’s game, and eat all my shame, in the form of wings, nachos and shrimp, we’ll drink with our dads, watch overpriced adds, and hope one features a chimp,” sang Weird Al and Rob.

John Travolta capped the ditty by trying to convince everyone to acquiesce and just root for the Patriots.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
