’96 Questions’ Returns to Vikings Locker Room
A video series popularized by former Minnesota Vikings defensive end Brian Robison is back.
96 Questions with Robison re-premiered Tuesday on the team’s YouTube channel. Robison was in familiar territory, cornering current Vikings players with a strange question and uplifting all of the replies to the audience.
You can watch the seven-minute video here.
Robison played for the Vikings from 2007 to 2017, participating in 173 games and never venturing to another NFL team. He retired around the time Danielle Hunter became a full-time starter on the Vikings defensive line.
When Robison retired, 96 Questions fell by the wayside. But with a new everything among the Vikings leadership this offseason, someone in the building for the Vikings opted to greenlight the show once again.
In Tuesday’s episode, Robison asked various Vikings, “the one thing you shouldn’t do during a first kiss.” Answers included too much grabbing, knocking teeth, bad breath, and staring at one’s partner.
Robison affirmed in a tweet on Monday that the show would have staying power and was not a standalone reunion event.
For some Vikings fans, the video will be a first glimpse at new players like Za’Darius Smith, who defected from the Green Bay Packers in March and signed with Minnesota.
The frequency of the show’s publication is unclear but will be available on YouTube.
The Vikings take on the Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium in less than 12 weeks to start the 2022 season.
