The shotgun was actually part of Earnhardt’s ongoing online challenge with Clint Bowyer.

“Alright, I got you Clint. I ain’t on vacation, but I’ll shotgun a beer with you today,” Earnhardt says in the film.

Panic! Quote tweeted the video with a hilarious caption.

When I say shotgun, you say…That soundtrack though!” the tweet reads.

Honestly, this is just amazing.

Earnhardt is definitely a scene fan, at least according to his track record. He recently gushed about his love for Korn. Additionally, he loves the Wonder Years, the Dangerous Summer and twenty one pilots, and he isn’t afraid to show it.

In other news, Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie recently just featured in Lil Dicky’s huge collage with nearly 30 artists. You can watch the video for that below.

Also, Panic! will perform at the Billboard Music Awards for the first time ever. The band is also up for  four awards that night, including Best Rock Song with “High Hopes.” They will also be going against twenty one pilots, Dave Matthews Band, Mumford & Sons and Imagine Dragons for Best Rock Album.

The awards show will be held at MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas May 1, and it will air live at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
