WATCH: Aaron Rodgers and Justin Vernon Talk for 40 Minutes at Lambeau Field
Well, today GQ posted a video that's likely to melt the hearts of Wisconsinites all over the state into puddles of cheesy goop. Brace yourself and watch in awe as two of the state's most well-known dudes, two iconoclasts of Wisconsin culture, two kings of the north talk about ... stuff. For over 40 minutes.
That’s right – Aaron Rodgers (star quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, NASCAR husband, hail mary king, the guy from the insurance ads and hospital billboards) and Justin Vernon (guy from Eau Claire, is in a band) had a meeting of the minds, a tête-à-tête if you will, in the heart of Lambeau Field for GQ’s One-on-One series. And, whattaya know, they filmed it.
Rodgers and an often giddy Vernon talk about centering oneself before performances, Aaron's goal to play until he is 40, the story behind Bon Iver's "Holocene" (which NPR listeners just named their favorite song of the decade), and a bunch of other stuff.
You’re probably already watching it, and not really reading this anymore, so I’m just gonna stop writing now. Enjoy!
Psssst. Around the 26.50 mark, Rodgers references The Pickle.
