Film fans, please take a moment from your usual routine of not watching sports — and more importantly, complaining about those of us who do — to watch the following video. SlateV (via our friend Katey Rich at Cinema Blend) has created this little video showing us what the Superbowl might be like if it were made by auteurs such as Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson and Jean-Luc Godard. Also, Werner Herzog.

As both a fan of football and a fair-weather fan of film, I find this little spoof to be quite funny. Where else can you see the Superbowl as seen through the eyes of Werner Herzog’s Grizzly Man narration? And why does it all make so much sense?
