Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey played the role of proud Super Bowl host for much of the 54-second video that was released by Sports Illustrated.

And then he had a message for the visiting fans.

“A big welcome to the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles fans. For the Eagles fans, don’t worry, we’re gonna be greasing all the lamp posts so you feel right at home.”

And the video wraps up with, what is portrayed to be an outtake.
