It’s time to celebrate your favorite tight end, as Sunday (Oct. 22) is the NFL‘s National Tight Ends Day.
National Tight Ends Day first started in 2019 after San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle was caught in a mic’d-up segment making a joke about tight ends having their own a holiday — and he got his wish, as it’s now celebrated every fourth Sunday in October.
This year, Kittle took his goal for tight end appreciation a step further by recruiting his 49ers teammates Christian McCaffrey, Ross Dwelley, Charlie Woerner and Kyle Juszczyk for a hilarious National Tight Ends Day music video featuring all five athletes hanging out in a convertible — with Kittle at the wheel — to sing about the importance that tight ends hold in the NFL.
“We move/ We pivot/ We catch, pass and we hit it/ Just cruise/ No gimmicks/ We’re the tight ends, let’s get it,” they sing in the hook, as various tight ends from the NFL flash across the screen.
In a post shared across the NFL’s social media channels, the league wrote alongside the cheeky music video: “Your favorite player’s favorite holiday… #NationalTightEndsDay is officially back. Let’s get it.”
Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce makes a few cameos in the clip, strutting confidently through the tunnel and busting out one of his signature celebration dances. Kelce is one of the most notable tight ends in the league right now, winning two Super Bowls with the Chiefs, starring in countless commercials, and dominating the headlines over the past month-plus due to his budding relationship with pop superstar Taylor Swift.
