The NFL replacement referees' game-ending controversial call on Monday Night Football that gave the Seahawks a victory over the Packers has taken the Internet by storm. Popular comedians have followed along, dissing the replacement referees left and right.
The Green Bay NBC affiliate used a replacement weather guy to retaliate the call against them and promoted it with #replacementweatherguy on Twitter. The fake forecast called for -200 degree weather at 7 a.m. and heated up to 346 degrees by noon. The video shows the real forecast afterward.
"The Late Show" host David Letterman also discussed the replacements on his "Top Ten Signs You're A Bad Referee" feature. The video can be seen by skipping ahead to the 14:21 mark here. The No. 1 reason? "You're hated everywhere but Seattle."
In addition to the "Call It Maybe" parody video, Flo-Rida's song "Whistle" was spoofed to mock the refs. Watch below.
