9/11 conspiracy theorist interrupts Super Bowl MVP's press conference

The hottest takes at the Super Bowl aren't even about sports.

Credit's A.J. Perez, who talked to the man about how he got passed security:

Around Mills' neck was an old credential from a festival he covered, a rectangular badge that, at quick glance, didn't look too dissimilar from the ones issued to media members, team employees and others who worked the Super Bowl.

He also used a common refrain whenever hassled by security, which is supposed verify each credential or ticket with a barcode along with putting attendees through other security screenings.

"I just said I was running late for work and I had to get in there," Mills said. "It was that simple."

The bizarre event captured the Internet's attention. Immediately, everyone thought the same thing: PETE CARROLL.
