Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller went on “Saturday Night Live” to troll Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers.

The Denver Broncos linebacker appeared on the show’s “Weekend Update” segment to discuss gravitational waves, which were detected for the first time this week.

“Let me put it like this: picture two huge forces slamming together like, say, me and Cam Newton,” Miller said.

“These forces when they collide cause gravity waves, like when I collided with Cam Newton and forced him to fumble.”

Update co-host Michael Che then asked Miller if he was just bragging.

“Come on, I told you this is science, man,” Miller said. “These waves are everywhere in the universe, just like I’m everywhere when Cam Newton closes his eyes.”

Miller also joked about how the Panthers’ vaunted offense only put up 10 points against his Broncos.

Miller, who was the No. 2 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft behind Newton, also released a pair of cleats with Adidas that appear to have kryptonite on them.
