Jason Kelce did not arrive in Las Vegas dressed as Alan from ‘The Hangover’

If Your Time is short

The Super Bowl LVIII inspired plenty of talking points for every sports fan. A flashy, star-studded halftime show from Usher. A nail-biting overtime game. A triumphant kiss between Taylor Swift and Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. And another intriguing outfit choice by Kelce’s older brother, Jason Kelce.

A viral Feb. 11 X post showed a photo of Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce in the same outfit as the comical, blackjack-playing "The Hangover" character Alan, played by Zach Galifianakis.

"Unpopular Opinion: Jason Kelce is cooler than Travis Kelce. He arrived in Vegas, for the Superbowl, dressed as Alan from The Hangover," the text in the photo read. It featured the photo of Kelce side-by-side with the photo of Alan, showing that they were both wearing the same shirt and brown leather satchel. 

The X post caption read, "Jason Kelce is a living god."

We hate to ruin the fun, but this isn’t a real photo of Kelce. It’s altered.

Today reported that Total Pro Sports posted the photo on X on Feb. 10, a day before it circulated through other posts. We found a version of the photo on TikTok posted Jan. 31.

A closer look at the side-by-side photos show the same shirt creases, the same background, and the same folded arm placed resting right above the hip.

CBS initially reported that Kelce dressed as Alan from "The Hangover," but the report was later updated to show his Super Bowl outfit. He wore overalls with the Chiefs red-and-yellow color scheme and arrowhead logo.

Kelce’s typical raucous behavior might have led fans to believe this antic was real. In January, Kelce took his shirt off and howled after his brother scored a touchdown in a playoff game against the Buffalo Bills. Two days before the Super Bowl, he shouted "Eagles!" at an Adele concert. (Adele said he sounded like a drunk football fan.) He was also recently spotted playing blackjack in Las Vegas. 

We rate the claim that Kelce arrived in Vegas dressed as Alan from "The Hangover" False.
