Favre versus the superfans.

WATCH: Brett Favre goes tailgating with some famous Bears fans

There's still over 24 hours to go until the Packers open up the 2019-20 NFL season against the rival Chicago Bears, but the smack talk between the two has started early thanks to a pretty terrific star-studded promo for Thursday night's matchup.

Posted by NBC Sports, the five-minute video (yes, that's long – but it's worth it, trust us) features Brett Favre tailgating with some famous fans of Da Bears: Bill Swerski's superfans.

Glad to see Brett's line readings haven't particularly improved since "There's Something About Mary." But other than some dry acting from The Gunslinger, this video's pretty spectacular, hitting all the right jokes: Brett Favre's ability to throw untimely interceptions, Cody Parkey's ability to hit two uprights with a single kick and home voice assistants' ability to annoy the heck out of me. In general, it's the perfect pregame entertainment before tomorrow night's big game in Chicago.

Speaking of which, the Packers season – and the entire NFL season with it – kicks off tomorrow night at 7:20 p.m. on NBC.

But seriously: Where can I get one of those Cody Parkey teddy bear field goal kicker sets?
