Some unlikely footage surfaced over the weekend following the 2019 ‘Super Saturday Night’ concert.

Treasured comic and actor Paul Rudd, 49, was caught headbanging in a crowd among thousands of fans during the Foo Fighters’ pre-Super Bowl headline performance.

Much to Rudd’s pleasure, frontman Dave Grohl and co., plowed through a rocking rendition of The Ramones’ 1976 anthem, Blitzkrieg Bop.

As the crowd marvelled at the “mighty Foo,” it’s unlikely that the actor expected to be caught bopping along and having the time of his life.

Fortunately for everybody else, New York-based comic writer and director, Aaron Chewning captured the priceless footage and shared it to Twitter, writing, “Here’s Paul Rudd loving the hell out of the Foo Fighters show last night.”

The long-awaited event took place at the Atlantic Stadium in Atlanta, Ga., last Saturday.

The concert was used to celebrate the imminent football game between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams the next day.

After making an appearance on the NFL’s red carpet on Sunday, Rudd proved to be a big fan of the sport.

He took to Twitter to offer his condolences to his fellow Kansas City Chiefs fans.

“I wanna say, go Chiefs — I’m speaking directly to the Kansas City fans — we’re gonna get ’em next year. We’ve got a heck of a quarterback.”

“Don’t be sad like I am” he concluded, with a wide grin on his face.

“They are great live and one of my favorite bands. Rock on, Paul!” added a dedicated fan of the Foo.

“I thought Paul Rudd was a Rush fan?” questioned one user, referring to Rudd’s role in the 2009 cult-comedy film, I Love You Man.

“Slappa da bass,” wrote many more people.

Other users dedicated their time to replacing the original audio with some of their own favourite songs.
