A fighting game that’s based on a existing pop culture franchise has the advantage of being able to pull in players from beyond the typical fighting game fandom. Such is the case with Dragon Ball FighterZ, and to help show this, Bandai Namco Games’s latest promotional video for the game features a group of people you might not necessarily associate with the genre: the Green Bay Packers.

Bandai Namco Games took a pre-release build of Dragon Ball FighterZ to the Green Bay Packers, letting some of their players — who also happened to be Dragon Ball fans — try it out. Players such as defensive tackle Mike Daniels, quarterback Brett Hundley, linebacker Chris Odom, offensive guard Justin McCray, and others not only get a chance to play the game, but also talk about their history and love for the Dragon Ball franchise, and why they’re excited for the game.

Check out the video below:

Dragon Ball FighterZ hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26 in the West, and February 1 in Japan. Before that, interested players can try it during its open beta from January 14 to 15.
