Kevin Hart explains attempt to get on Super Bowl stage: ‘When alcohol is in your system, you do dumb stuff’


Kevin Hart’s brazen attempt to celebrate onstage with the Philadelphia Eagles after their Super Bowl victory was motivated by a little liquid confidence.

The comedian — who was shut down by a security guard as he approached the stage after Sunday’s game — explained in an Instagram video that he’d been drinking, but was too excited about the Eagles win to feel bad about getting denied.

“When alcohol is in your system, you do dumb stuff,” Hart began in the video. “Me trying to go on stage with the trophy (is) definitely in the top two stupidest things I’ve ever done but who cares? The Eagles won the Super Bowl.”

Footage of Hart getting blocked by the security guard on the field as he tried to get onstage went viral Sunday after it aired on the NBC post-game broadcast.

Hart acknowledged in his Instagram post that he was “still a little tipsy” and that his wife, Eniko Parrish, warned him not to go onstage.

“It didn’t work out good,” Hart said of his plan with a laugh. “That man did his job, didn’t he?”

Hart, a longtime Eagles superfan, summed up his minute-long Instagram post with a series of hashtags such as #iShouldHaveListenedToMyWife and “AtLeastIDidntPunchaHorse,” along with the caption, “Who gives a s — t … .Fllllyyyy EAGLES FLY!!!!!”

After his denial, Hart appeared on NFL Network and dropped an F-bomb on air.

The Eagles defeated the New England Patriots, 41-33, in Minneapolis to clinch the first Super Bowl title in franchise history.
