When you come up with the winning play for the biggest sporting event of the year, you'd think you'd start to get noticed by passers-by. Think again.

We're sure that Patriots' cornerback Malcolm Butler thought he'd be battling through crowds of admirers after he completed this interception in  the final 30 seconds of Super Bowl XLIX earlier this month.

But he was in for a surprise when he took to the street to ask members of the public about their opinions on the Super Bowl and the last-gasp play that shut out the Seattle Seahawks.

One says that he'd tell Butler, the undrafted rookie who signed for New England last May, that "he (Butler) had a vision for it and he came through with it," despite the player standing right in front of him.

Butler answers with a wry: "I did have a vision for it."

The 24-year-old's name will forever be remembered after his first season in the NFL ended with one of the most memorable finishes in Super Bowl history but, as for his face, people still have trouble recognising that.
