Danica Patrick Spoofed This Oscar-Winner at the ESPYs

Danica Patrick hosted the 2018 ESPY Awards on Wednesday, July 18, making her the first woman to ever hold that honor. Boyfriend Aaaron Rodgers was there with her, though he didn’t partake in any hosting duties himself. However, these two did put together something special for the audience, according to Us Weekly.

In a spoof video shown at Wednesday’s ceremony, Patrick and Rodgers teamed up to spoof the Oscar-winning film I, Tonya with the trailer for "Me, Danica" — which starts with Patrick, in a big, crimped wig and a scrunchy, declaring, “I’m the best driver that my sport’s ever seen. I drove a double axle better than anyone else. But the friggin’ judges were always against me.”

Allison Janney, who won an Academy Award for her performance as Harding’s mom LaVona Golden in the film, introduced the clip. Patrick portrayed her own mother in the spoof; Us notes that Patrick’s mom and Golden bare a striking resemblance.

As her mother, Patrick said, “If you ask me, it all went south when she met that boy," referring to Rodgers. "He was a bad influence. A real piece of s—t.”

When Rodgers himself appears, he’s wearing a mustache and he and Patrick compliment each other on how pretty they are before making out. The spoof then follows the general plot of I, Tonya, with Paul Walter Hauser (who played the same role in the film) trying to sabotage Helio Castroneves‘ race car.

On Twitter, several people replied to ESPN to tell them how funny they found the video. "This is sensational," wrote one person. Another said, "This was priceless," with three crying-laughing emojis. Someone else told Patrick to return to her race car driving roots: "I live in Australia. And I loved it. Funny as hell. Got our sense of humor. Oh yeh Danika get back into a car. Miss you already. Love indi [sic] car smashes." We’re always here for hilarious spoofs.
