Somebody brought Adrian Peterson an orange peanut

About a week ago,’s Ryan Wilson delighted the Eye on Football blog fans by embedding the above video in which NFL players and coaches were the victims of bad lip-reading.

You could watch the video every day for a month and never fail to laugh, especially when Jim Harbaugh seems to scream at the officials, “I want cake now!”

Anyway, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is showcased a couple of times during the video. The video was taken from his postgame interview in Week 17 after he barely failed to break Eric Dickerson’s rushing record. And if you fast forward to the 1:59 mark of the video, you can “watch” and “hear” Peterson say, “You got an orange peanut? An orange peanut for me? … Wow, an orange peanut. Well, I accept you.”

Luckily for Peterson, somebody actually brought him an orange peanut to autograph after a Pro Bowl practice in Hawaii. As you can see below, via Reddit, it is an awesome, awesome moment.

Peterson accepts you for bringing him an orange peanut. (
