Steelers 'Babies' Featured In Super Bowl 50 Choir Ad

What better way to celebrate the big game?

"In the end / when our team won / mom and dad looked at each other / one thing led to another that night."

NFL advertisers teamed with Seal to recreate "one of the greatest love songs of all time to celebrate the greatest game of all time," according to the caption posted on the NFL's YouTube channel on Monday.

Data suggests nine months after a Super Bowl victory, winning cities see a rise in births, according to the ad.

Children and adults garbed in choir robes, hats and accessories in their respective team colors sing Seal's "Kiss From a Rose" with reimagined lyrics celebrating Super Bowl 50 and the "fruits" of the league's labor.

Pictured above, Steelers fans born following the team's 1976 Super Bowl X win over the Dallas Cowboys would be 39 years old today.

The ad also features Super Bowl Babies born following wins for the Cowboys, New York Giants, Indianapolis Colts, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, San Francisco 49ers and the original victors from the Green Bay Packers' 1967 win. Cries from Seattle's 2014 babies also add to the serenade. 

"It is a day / so super / it's why we were born."
