On Thursday, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) took to his Twitter to post photos of himself dressed as coach Ted Lasso, the mustache, sweater and khaki pants wearing company of the smash Apple TV+ show in one of this year’s most popular Halloween costumes.
But one of the posts, in particular, seemed to confuse, disturb and humour people.
In one video, an attached “believe” poster can be seen on his office door, a homage to the fictional soccer team AFC Richmond’s motto. Players in the program slap the sign for good luck before leaving the locker room, following an American tradition.
However, some legitimate teams, such as Liverpool, have placards that players slap on their way out of the tunnel.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Ted Lasso was one of the most popular streaming series. In a report from Insider, the show’s second season created the illusion of full stadiums with computer-generated images (CGI) and extras shot in distant places.
According to Forbes, while Ted Lasso costumes have been popular this Halloween season, Netflix’s Squid Game has been topping sales with character-related ensembles in 2021.
