People just love Paul Rudd, especially on the Internet where he's basically got unanimous approval. So, when his fans got word that the Ant-Man star was down in Miami for NFL Honors and the Super Bowl, they couldn't hold in their excitement. It's been a fun time during the last few weeks as Rudd's Kansas City Chiefs powered their way to the biggest stage of them all. He and Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet hyped up the team's fans before the massive comeback against the Houston Texans. There was a lot of emotion in Arrowhead Stadium and online people were happy to see a nice guy be on the winning end of things.
While on the red carpet for the event, Rudd got to talk to Cleveland Brown wideout Jarvis Landry who asked how the actor ended up becoming a Kansas City fan. The Ant-Man star explained that he grew up there and has been a fan ever since. Seeing that passion on his face prompted Landry to ask him if he was ready for the moment. That question makes a ton of sense as the Chiefs haven't won a Super Bowl since 1969. So, there's a lot riding on Sunday's contest, but Rudd won't let it get him down as he remained just about as positive as he always is.
Even more hilarious was Twitter's general reaction to one reporter's quest to get the Marvel star to recreate his "Look At Us" meme from an appearance on Hot Ones. When the Chiefs punched their ticket to the big game, Rudd was on a flight to Kansas City and a reporter noticed him. Charlotte Wilder of Sports Illustrated wanted to do the meme exchange right then and there, but she resisted. Then after a whirlwind comeback and locker room celebration, she found him hanging out in the locker room. Without even asking, he remembered her from the flight and her greeting. Then, he said the magic words without even knowing that's what she wanted.
Well, there will be more people wanting to see those words come out of Rudd's mouth if Kansas City prevails tomorrow. Check out some of the best responses to his appearance below:

Do it for Paul
Normally I don't care about the Super Bowl, but that's only because Super Bowls of the past have never been directly linked to Paul Rudd's happiness. This year, we do it for him— ♥ mark ♥ (@markedly) January 28, 2020
It really is that simple.
I want the @Chiefs to win the super bowl because Paul Rudd wants the chiefs to win the super bowl— molly (@mollyshacter) January 28, 2020
