Every video game has glitches–some big, some small. But Madden 15, the newest version of the EA Sports NFL juggernaut, has both! It’s a big glitch that’s super small! And it comes in the form of the smallest linebacker in the history of the world. Early Madden 15 users are reporting what snarky insiders think is a sneaky promo for Marvel’s back-on-track Ant-Man movie. But this player isn’t Ant-Man actor Paul Rudd–it’s supposed to be rookie linebacker Christian Kirksey. The game turns Kirksey from a 6’2,” 235-pound force into a tiny little thing, rendering him at about 1/8 scale, it seems. (He runs around the other players’ ankles.)
You can check him out in the Vine below. You have to admit it would be awesome to see an NFL player on Sundays who looked like this. Bill Veeck, the legendary baseball owner who once sent a midget up to bat, would love it. Marvel and Ant-Man director Peyton Reed had no comment. But needless to say, people are being primed for Ant-Man in all sorts of ways!
