ESPN’s Troy Aikman Was Asked Whether He’s Aware People Think He and Jay-Z Look Exactly Alike

NFL fans on social media are sure to be familiar with a well-known internet meme insinuating that ESPN NFL color commentator Troy Aikman looks like world-renowned rapper Jay-Z.

Pablo Torre hosts Pablo Torre Finds Out for Meadowlark Media, and had Aikman on the podcast this week to get to the bottom of whether or not the Fox NFL analyst was aware of the internet meme.

“Anymore, you don’t know what’s real and what’s not,” Aikman told Torre. “So I don’t know if that was actually an unedited picture of me, but it’s pretty scary,"

Aikman was aware of a meme floating around that he said “looked nothing like him.”

“There was a meme, it still pops up from time to time, from some game and it looks nothing like me, so I don’t know,” Aikman said as Torre laughed.

It seems that the Hall of Famer has been waiting a long time to be asked about this, and he didn’t fail to provide a classic response in a great moment on Torre's podcast.
