Odds are, you haven’t given much thought to Verne Troyer, the guy who played Mini-Me in the Austin Powers films almost 20 years ago. Well, he’s still kicking, eager to step into the spotlight whenever the opportunity presents itself. And it presented itself recently when he was at LAX and encountered the TMZ guys.

They got to talking, and Troyer shared with the paparazzi that he used to be a football player and even tackled a player three times his size.

It’s all bizarre and sounds completely untrue, but that should just make you want to see the video clip even more.

Fortunately, we have it, and it’s right here. Take a look:

I’d pay good money to see him at a training camp.
