PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) – Bud Light has bestowed one more gift upon the City of Brotherly Love following the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl win last season.
On Wednesday, a day before the Eagles kick off the 2018 NFL season against the Atlanta Falcons, Bud Light debuted a new statue.
The statue captures the iconic and historical moment when backup quarterback and Super Bowl LII MVP Nick Foles asked “Do you want ‘Philly Philly?’”
Head Coach Doug Pederson obliged, and the call gave way to one of the most memorable plays in Super Bowl history (certainly the most memorable in Eagles history).
Nick Foles is the only quarterback to throw and catch a touchdown in Super Bowl history. The play perfectly epitomized this Eagles team. It showed the amazing chemistry they have on and off the field and the aggressive play calling from Doug Pederson that earned him a Super Bowl title.

The special moment between Nick Foles and Doug Pederson in Super Bowl 52 is now cast in metal for all generations of Philadelphia Eagles fans to remember forever.
Bud Light unveiled the statue of Doug and Nick inside the Headhouse Plaza at Lincoln Financial Field on Wednesday morning. The statue depicts the moment Nick asked Doug if he “wants Philly Philly?” To which Pederson famously responded, “Yeah, let’s do it.”
The rest, as they say, is history.
Foles caught a touchdown on the trick play on 4th down to the amazement of the sporting world.
The base of the statue includes the conversation the two had and that the statue is courtesy of Bud Light.
We’re told the statue will remain outside of the Linc “for at least this season” with the possibility of it being a permanent fixture.

Eagles cheerleaders, mascot Swoop joined the Bud Light town crier (the guy in the funny hat) to unveil the more-than-life-sized statue of quarterback Nick Foles and coach Doug Pederson calling the iconic play from the Eagles’ Super Bowl win.
“Do you want Philly Philly?”, the date of Super Bowl LII and the Bud Light logo adorn the stone base.
