Since they've got Europe all figured out, Bayern Munich are putting a big push into developing an American fan base this year. Between plans for a New York office and a spot in this year's MLS All-Star game, the German champions really want more Americans to like them. And what better way to achieve that than with a brief YouTube clip that attempts to pander to their love of a completely different sport's biggest event — the Super Bowl.

In this video, Berni the bear attempts to catch the pigskin on Bayern's snow covered training ground. Andrea Pirlo, however, did it much better.

Anyway, when you think Super Bowl, be sure to associate it with Bayern Munich. At the rate they've been winning trophies lately, they might just find a way to beat both the Seahawks and Broncos.
