It seems even America's tallest man likes the Vikes.

Igor Vovkovinskiy is a Ukrainian living in the U.S., and at 7 foot, 8.33 inches, he holds the Guinness World Record for Tallest Living Man in America.

And when you're as tall as Vovkovinskiy, there are a lot of things that people want to know about you.

Although he's already done an "Ask Me Anything" forum on Reddit in the past, Vovkovinskiy says that people continue to ask him questions online – so he recently sat down for another AMA.

So what did he say?

Among the questions asked, someone from Austin, Minnesota wanted to know who is Vovkovinskiy's favorite NFL team.

His answer? The Vikings, of course.

"Well... if I say anything else, my house will be egged, so Minnesota Vikings!! No, but really, I like the Vikes," he wrote.

He's also a big fan of Mad Max Fury Road and frequenting the Barnes and Noble at the Mall of America.

Vovkovinskiy also confirmed that he used to work at Sam's Club in Rochester, and talked about what he eats in a typical day.

You can find the answer to that question and more here.
