I was perusing through some Super Bowl 2021 pics, as you do, when something struck me — namely, the photos of the seats in the arena.
SURELY those are not real people…
…Yup, those are some cardboard cutouts.
What sweet, dystopian nightmare are we living in?
According to Insider, there are 25,000 real fans in the stadium — but the NFL added 30,000 cutouts to make the stadium look full and help make sure fans are spread out.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL. There are CELEBRITY cutouts!
DJ Khaled is (sort of) in the house!
Billie Eilish is (kind of) in the crowd!
Lady Gaga is (more or less) Chromatica-ing it up!
Sean Evans, of Hot Ones fame, is (nearly) “Soaking it all in”!
And Guy Fieri is playing pure mind games with us!
BRB, need to go stare at a wall for a bit.
