Reporter: ...Does this feel pretty good though, that you've come through all that stuff, that you've kept your nose down and kept playing football and done the deal?
Allen: Definitely. I can't take credit for it. It's all the mullet, man. This thing has just absolutely been taking over my life... People are like, "Dang, look at that guy's hair, it is sweet! And that'll lull 'em to sleep, and I take advantage of 'em.
Reporter: ...So if you want to be successful--
Allen: Grow a mullet. Obviously. Because up here [motions to forehead], this says "success." And in the back, it says "party." I mean, which one do you want? Who's comin' to the table? They don't know.

Holy crap.

I can't honestly imagine A) growing a mullet B) bragging on the mullet C) actually citing the old "business in the front, party in the rear" line.

I'm stunned.

Me, glad I no longer live in KC if for no other reason than this.

Did you watch the video? It's hilarious! Obviously this guy is not taking himself seriously, he's having a bit of self-effacing fun.

Just watch the video.

as far as i'm concerned this is the NFL's Quote of the Year.

Nah. I can't watch the video from work. So said, my response was apparently as tongue in cheek as his video was.

Me, needing to be a little less dry.

(but I still can't imagine growing a mullet)

I briefly considered it (growing a mullet) but my wife put a stop to that nonsense right away. She has plenty of practice doing that after ten years of stopping every hint of interest in getting a tattoo dead in it's tracks. There will be no ink and no mullets in my house. The wife has spoken and if she ain't happy then nobody's happy at my house.

The thing about a mullet is that only one in a million guys can pull it off. This guy doesn't but he gets close and that's what makes everyone else think it's possible. For most of us however it's not. We'll grow one and be exactly like that guy everybody makes fun of for wearing a mullet.

If you decide to go for it, post some pics or maybe a courtroom artist's rendering.

Back in '88 and '89 I had the Patrick Swayze Roadhouse Mullet. I didn't have super human strength, but I was close.

I was slaying all over Northwest Austin back then. I would have gotten more if I had a wardrobe of Body Glove tank tops and a Camaro with an Ultra-Hot sticker.

While I was in the UK mullets were a popular hairstyle, especially in Wales. I don't have any clue why. We even begin referring to it as the "Welsh mullet".

Obviously, because he does not have a mullet. Didn't you read the title and watch the video???? :joker:

If you can grow this, I think you can grow a mullet.

i postulate the idea for jared's mullet was hatched by the KC marketing department.
