Paul Rudd thoroughly enjoying a Foo Fighters gig is the best video you'll see all day
It's not often that you get to see celebrities in their element kicking back and having a good time. Most of the time, you get the sense that when they're out in public, their publicist has to okay every smile, every gesture, every wink to the camera.
Because of this, you don't often feel like you've had an insight into their real persona. However, that doesn't mean that you can't get lucky every once in a while, as the following clip shows.
This week, an eagle-eyed fan spotted Ant-Man star Paul Rudd rocking out at a Foo Fighters’ pre-Super Bowl concert in Atlanta. When Dave Grohl and the rest of the band broke into a spirited cover of Blitzkrieg Bop by The Ramones, someone in the audience captured Rudd headbanging, totally absorbed in the moment.
He certainly seemed to be enjoying his downtime. I guess he's happy about finally managing to escape the Quantum Zone.
Suffice to say, social media users were elated when they saw the clip, and a number of people commented on Rudd's dance moves. One person wrote: "Can we wrap him in bubble wrap? He’s one of the last remaining good things we have left," while another person added: "I would be dancing like that too if foo fighters covered blitzkrieg bop right in front of my eyes."
In a recent interview, Rudd opened up about the pressures of becoming a role model by playing a superhero in the Marvel cinematic universe. He stated: "It’s a cool club to belong to. At the Marvel offices, I can go up to the third floor and get buzzed straight in. You feel as if you have the keys to the executive washroom .. I’m still the embarrassing dad. My daughter is eight and thinks I’m the bee’s knees. My son is 13 and doesn’t even want me going to his school. I make jokes to a series of eye rolls."
He also spoke about the positive effect that his parents had on his upbringing, stating: "They told me I could be anything I wanted to be, but I had to work hard for it. They also provided a home in which I could believe in myself, so when I was starting out I felt like I was able to conquer the world.
"Of course, I was completely naive and couldn’t [laughs], but I have to believe that was because I knew I was supported emotionally and in every other way by my mom and dad. Both my parents were very funny and realistic. My dad was a history fanatic and a really outspoken liberal who was always writing letters to newspapers, arguing about all sorts of backward issues in his estimation of this country. So I was surrounded by this kind of truth to power attitude and tenacity."
So there you have it; this Friday night, why not take a leaf out of Paul's book and rock out at a quality gig? Try and enjoy yourself half as much as he did.
