Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is down in Hawaii for the NFL Pro Bowl, a star-studded event that nevertheless will attract tens, nay, hundreds of viewers on Sunday.

As Peterson was strolling down a long line of enthusiastic autograph seekers, one fan held out an orange peanut, meaning this guy has seen, and like all of us, thoroughly enjoyed “NFL: A Bad Lip-Reading,” the sublimely hilarious video that went viral earlier in January.

It looks like Adrian Peterson got a kick out of the orange peanut, but I wonder if it was because of the novelty of someone asking him to sign such a strange item or if it was that Peterson is aware of the video and enjoyed it himself. Here’s hoping it was the latter.
