A few months back the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee asked Minnesotans to film themselves throwing a football in front of, or at, the most popular places in Minnesota.
And today – the day Houston officially hands the Super Bowl keys to Minneapolis – we get to see the results.
The MinnesotaHandoff Video is made up entirely of the submitted videos, including celebrity appearances from Karl-Anthony Towns of the Timberwolves, Matt Dumba of the Wild, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, and celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern.
Naturally, the video ends with an appearance from legendary Vikings coach Bud Grant.
