Despite being surrounded by mammoth-size football players and bulking security guards, it wasn't hard to miss comedian-actor Kevin Hart on the field during the Super Bowl trophy presentation Sunday night.
It turns out the 5-foot 4-inch funnyman from Philadelphia was trying to crash his way onto the very VIP platform where NFL officials hand over the Vince Lombardi trophy to Philadelphia Eagles owners and players.
As cameras followed the trophy through the sea of people on the field, they briefly showed Hart having words with a security guard near the steps of the stage.

After his run-in with on-field security, Hart made his way onto an NFL Network set.

Hart later went on Instagram and explained himself in an expletive-laden video post.
"To all the kids out there, don't drink," Hart said. "When alcohol is in your system, you do dumb stuff … Me trying to go on stage with the trophy definitely in the top two stupidest things I've ever done."
