The Ellen Show was on the Illinois campus for a segment Monday, and Illini defensive lineman Austin Teitsma made a cameo in the episode, which aired Wednesday afternoon. Ellen had asked Illinois students to dress up as their favorite movie character. Teitsma chose Will Ferrell’s Buddy The Elf, while a couple of the others selected “Wilson,” the volleyball from Cast Away, and The Joker, who won the contest. Watch the whole segment in this post.
“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear,” Teitsma sang when it was his turn.
