With the return of football also came the return of fantasy football. That’s right the game that makes all of us average Joe’s think we could run a professional football team if we wanted to. Well with this “friendly” competition between usually friends or family members comes some, jabbing, some busting of chops, or as its most commonly known in sports trash talk.
Some of the biggest stars in the Marvel universe, including Ryan Reynolds, Tom Holland, Chris Evans, Paul Rudd, and Robert Downey Jr. are participating in the AGBO Superhero League presented by FanDuel. Rudd and Downey Jr have been raising trash talk to high art with regard to their fantasy football matchup.
With the participants donating $1.25 million to the charities of their choice this year, the stakes have never been bigger .
RDJ posted a video on his Instagram straight talking trash about how he was not only going to destroy his team but then go and destroy his new open candy store, and it was also accompanied by graphics showing Rudd crying.
Well Rudd not only answered with his own video, but he answered with his own music video!
Set to Black Sabbath’s song “Iron Man” in the clip Rudd recreates the band’s classic music video while changing the lyrics to be about his Marvel pal.
“Has he lost his mind, will his team score more than mine?” Rudd sings at the start in the video. “Can he win at all? No, he can’t, his game sucks balls.”
“Now the time is here for Iron Man to disappear,” Rudd goes on to sing, before delivering a brutal blow: “I love you 3,000 but you’re going to lose to an ant.”
Oh just in case you were wondering Rudd is currently ranked 8th in the fantasy league while Downey Jr. is in 10th place. The current leader is Chris Hemsworth.
