Last week on Thursday, the Philadelphia Eagles celebrated their victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII by having a Super Bowl victory parade around the streets of Philadelphia.

Hundreds of thousands of fans lined up from Broad Street to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway on Thursday in Philadelphia to celebrate the Eagles first ever Super Bowl win, which came after they defeated the Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, Minnesota on February 4.

Players and coaches of the franchise went around the city on a bus parading the Vince Lombardi trophy to the fans waving to them as they went by. Many fans and players even dressed up for the occasion. 

However, for one Eagles player, the day was a little bit of a sticky situation. Corey Clement found himself in a situation where he was trying to get back on the bus to celebrate with his teammates as they went around the city.

Clement was trying to get back onto the team bus when he was approached by the police patrolling the parade route at the time as you can see in the video further down in this article.

As you can see in the video, the police had no idea who he was, and they briefly moved to grab him off the parade route, before realizing he was actually a player on the team and allowed him to get on the bus.

Sure, it's harder to recognize some of the lesser well known NFL players, especially when you take into account they were a football helmet when they are on TV the most, but Clement was a Super Bowl hero!

During the Super Bowl win, the running back had three rushing attempts for eight yards. He also lead the Eagles in receiving as he caught four passes for 100 yards and a touchdown. He essentially played a big part in helping Philadelphia win their first-ever Super Bowl title!

Hopefully, police officers will be able to recognize Clement on the next victory parade the Eagles have so that he can avoid having another embarrassing moment like this, that's if they win another Super Bowl.
