Chiefs star Travis Kelce portrays Indiana Jones to promote SNL gig as he makes acting debut in commercial

Travis Kelce, the star player of the Kansas City Chiefs and reigning Super Bowl champion, is set to make his highly-anticipated TV debut on SNL in three days. To tease his appearance on this weekend’s episode, Kelce showcased his acting prowess by channelling his inner Indiana Jones in an original teaser.

Sporting a classic safari-style outfit reminiscent of Indiana Jones, the 33-year-old tight end showed off his dedication to providing entertainment both on and off the field. His attire would make even Harrison Ford proud.

 Who is Travis Kelce teaming up with for his latest skit?

Taking inspiration from the 1981 action-adventure film ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’, Kelce teamed up with SNL comedian Marcello Hernandez to create a skit. In the skit, the duo attempts to swap a gold SNL logo with the coveted Vince Lombardi trophy, which is awarded to the winners of the Super Bowl.

As Studio 8H crumbles around them, reminiscent of a scene from Steven Spielberg’s 1981 action-adventure film starring Harrison Ford, fellow cast members Bowen Yang and Ego Nwodim offer some witty commentary.

In the most recent episode of SNL, which aired on Feb 25, the five-time host Woody Harrelson sparked debate with his opening monologue, questioning the mandate for COVID-19 vaccines.

Towards the end of the skit, the footage shows two SNL producers comically questioning what exactly Hernandez and the NFL star are up to.

‘How long have they been doing that?’ a female producer asks her male counterpart.

Travis Kelce has appeared on television before, notably as the star of the unscripted dating series ‘Catching Kelce’ on E! in 2016.

Hence, Travis Kelce has once again proved that he is a multi-talented individual, this time by showcasing his acting skills in an original teaser for SNL. Dressed in typical Indiana Jones fashion, Kelce teamed up with SNL comedian Marcello Hernandez to create a skit that had fans and fellow cast members laughing out loud. 

With his impressive football career and now successful acting debut, it’s clear that Travis Kelce is a force to be reckoned with both on and off the field. We can’t wait to see what he has in store for us in the future!
