British people try to describe the Super Bowl, admire Richard Sherman

Jay Busbee

Look, we know you know everything about the NFL and the Super Bowl, as every good right-thinking American does. But what happens when you talk to people who can't tell a Welker from a Wilson? Buzzfeed reached out to some of our neighbors across the pond for their insights on our grand game, and the results are predictably ridiculous:

• On football players in general: "They seem to actively like getting hurt."

• On the broadcast: "It looks like the TV's having a fit because it's so covered in images and animated things."

• On halftime shows: "Beyonce won the Super Bowl."

• On Richard Sherman: "I have no idea what he said, I have no idea what he was on about, and I want to see more of it."

Good stuff. Now, you go try to explain cricket.
