Rudd also gave a pregame speech of sorts to a camera ahead of the game, alongside fellow actor and Chiefs fan Eric Stonestreet.
Once the Chiefs secured the victory, Rudd was finally free to celebrate, and he seemed to make the most of his time with the team.In a recent appearance on the show "Hot Ones," Rudd became something of a meme for his interaction with host Sean Evans in which he expressed disbelief at their situation. According to numerous fans on the ground, Rudd carried a similar expression of awesome wonder throughout the Chiefs locker room celebration.
One person who experienced Rudd's joy first-hand was Sports Illustrated's Charlotte Wilder. Wilder had tweeted on Saturday that she had shared a flight with Rudd, and had considered approaching him about his recent meme.While she didn't mention the meme at the time, the two found each other again in the Chiefs locker room, making for a perfect moment.Advertisement
With the win, the Chiefs are set to face off against the San Francisco 49ers in Miami with the Lombardi Trophy on the line. Given how excited he was to watch his team win the AFC, there's little doubt that Rudd will be in attendance again on Super Bowl Sunday.

Paul Rudd is in the Chiefs locker room and every time he speaks to someone about the win he's sorta doing the "look at us" meme face. He is very, very happy.- Kevin Clark (@bykevinclark) January 20, 2020
Okay I said hi to Paul Rudd and told him I was going to say "Look at us!" but that I *didn't* and he seemed to appreciate that. Also said if he wanted to talk about the Chiefs he could find me and he said "Okay, if I want to talk about the Chiefs I'll find you." Very nice guy!!- Charlotte Wilder (@TheWilderThings) January 18, 2020
