NFL makes music video honoring babies conceived on the night of the Super Bowl

Few things are more arousing than your favorite team winning a championship, or so suggests the data indicating that a city’s Super Bowl title results in a spike in births nine months later.

To honor the concept of “Super Bowl babies,” the NFL rounded up people of all ages who were supposedly conceived the night their parents’ team won the Super Bowl and stuck them in a video parodying Seal’s “Kiss From a Rose.”

Among others, we’ve got babies from the very first Super Bowl…

Babies from some of the most exciting Super Bowls ever…

And babies from a very recent Super Bowl (because apparently three-month-old 2015 Super Bowl babies were impractical)…

Seal, himself probably not a Super Bowl baby, also appeared in the video:

It’s hard to imagine how the NFL found all these “babies.” Did they just put out a casting call for kids born in early November? Did parents have to prove the night of conception or something?

It would also be interesting to hear how they explained this concept — and the songs’ lyrics — to the seven-year-old Giants Super Bowl babies and also how they convinced the 13-year Buccaneers Super Bowl babies to get over how gross it is to imagine their parents… you know.

Anyway, just think while you’re watching the Super Bowl on Sunday, who wins will affect which city gets a new influx of babies.
