The Minnesota Vikings sent some interesting thank you gifts to Philadelphia Eagles fans who donated to the Vikings Foundation.

According to a report, the Vikings mailed Super Bowl game confetti to approximately 24 Eagles fans following the donations. Vikings spokesman Jeff Anderson explained the reason.

“We just felt it would be a nice gesture to some classy fans,” Anderson said, per Darren Rovell of ESPN.”

Per Anderson, a lot of the donations by Eagles fans came with notes of apology after the Eagles beat Minnesota in the NFC Championship Game.

Anderson also said the confetti sent to Eagles fans was a “last-minute” idea.

Who doesn’t enjoy opening up an envelope full of confetti that eventually needs to be cleaned up? Anyway, the comaraderie between the two last standing NFC teams from 2017 is pretty cool.
