NFL Bad Lip Reading 2016: first video released

With Super Bowl 50 days away American football fans are in for a treat with two BLR instalments

The Super Bowl is still days away but the most anticipated moment of the NFL season has arrived - with the first instalment of the Bad Lip Reading season review.

The long awaited video dropped on YouTube on Tuesday morning and features an array of stars captured on camera babbling utter nonsense, as interpreted by a team of lip readers.

The first NFL video appeared in early 2013 and has been watched more than 65 million times, and last year's effort has notched up 33.5 million hits.

This year there is the promise of a second instalment, although fans declared themselves more than happy with the first effort.

Star of the show, once again, is Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, who will be in action in Super Bowl 50 on Sunday. Last year he stole the show with a yarn about a Syrian dog called Paco Sinbad, and this year he is apparently worried about snakes.

We also learn about the New Year's Eve plans of Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings, and Drew Brees outlines his plans for an animal themed party to his New Orleans Saints team-mates.
