The Texans’ star runs through a greatest hits of Chris Farley and Will Ferrell while getting in some calisthenics, and throws in a decent Christopher Walken impersonation for good measure.

Watt’s comedic stylings are nothing new, as the two-time Defensive Player of the Year has previously guest starred on New Girl and The League, and showed off his Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonation with the Terminator himself.
