For the celebration, Lazard pretended to pour a drink from the football into the hands of his teammates. The players fell to the ground as Rodgers joined them in the end zone.

“Best celebration of the season,” tweeted Andrew Perloff. “Thank you, Twitter, for pointing out it’s ayahuasca.”
The celebration appears to be a nod to Rodgers admitting to doing ayahuasca, a psychedelic tea featuring DMT, while traveling in Peru in 2020. Rodgers has credited the elixir in past interviews for aiding performance on the field and its overall mental health benefits.
The NFL world reacted in typical fashion:
Had the whole squad 👅 🐸 https://t.co/D8p7LsG1TU

“Missed this in the moment last night,” said Bears beat reporter Patrick Finley.
It's fine for the whole Packers offense to promote ayahuasca, but I'm not allowed to drink at my nephew's baseball games anymore? 🤔 https://t.co/VVUMhQhQIH

“And Rodgers capped it off by making the all-seeing eye hand sign with a fellow ‘spiritualist.’ Goated annoying sports guy. Kyrie Irving wishes,” said A.A. Ron Woolf.
Meanwhile Josh Gordon’s entire career has been impacted by the same drug use that Rodgers gets to just do…for some reason? I know it’s skin color but my god @NFL at least TRY to pretend to care about this,,, https://t.co/a2RRA6RTnB
