It doesn’t take much to get Chiefs fans fired up these days. A 7-0 record will get the juices flowing like nothing else. But one YouTube video of Morgan Freeman seemingly firing up the troops has got fans super stoked.

It was posted Monday by YouTube user Tommy Badami and features a stirring speech Freeman delivered in the movie “Lean on Me.” Interspersed with video of Chiefs fans and players, it looks like Freeman is talking directly to local football fans.

“They say you are inferior,” he challenges his listeners, then tells them why they are not.

A show of hands from those who’d love to see the Academy Award nominee deliver this speech at Arrowhead.

Badami posted a similar video last week featuring a fiery speech by Al Pacino.
