As millions tuned in to watch Super Bowl LVIII, Nickelodeon's alternate broadcast brought a unique and entertaining twist to the game, with none other than Dora the Explorer serving as the rules expert in the booth.
Typically a role reserved for seasoned sports analysts, Dora took on the task of explaining the intricacies of American football in a way that resonated with a younger audience.
In a departure from the usual serious tone of rule discussions by experts like CBS's Gene Steratore and Fox Sports' Dean Blandino, the fictional character, known for her adventures and problem-solving skills, broke down the rules of the game in layman's terms, making it accessible to the predominantly young viewers.
One hilariously shady moment occurred when an NFL announcer sought Dora's thoughts on the game during the first quarter of the matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.
Dora seemingly called out the lack of touchdowns by either team, responding:
“OK. Who needs a map to find the end zone?”

Dora's unexpected jab had social media users cackling.
In a stunning comeback, the Chiefs erased a 10-point deficit to secure their second consecutive Super Bowl victory, triumphing over the 49ers with a final score of 25-22 in overtime during football's biggest event, which was held in Las Vegas.
This historic win makes the Chiefs the first team in two decades to achieve back-to-back Super Bowl championships.
The matchup marked only the second time in Super Bowl history that the game extended into overtime, with the previous instance occurring in Super Bowl LI in 2017. In that memorable game, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots orchestrated a remarkable comeback from a 28-3 deficit to ultimately defeat the Atlanta Falcons with a final score of 34-28.
