'Field of Dreams' parody makes fun of NFL lockout

July 6, 2011 | 11:10 am

What do NFL players do when they're locked out?

Apparently, they hang out in cornfields playing football in front of teen idols.

Taylor Lautner, a household name among tweens thanks to his shirtless exploits in the "Twilight" movies, has channeled his inner Kevin Costner in a new video posted to titled "Field of Dreams 2: NFL lockout with Taylor Lautner."

A bunch of NFL players appear in the parody, including Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez and Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. Costner and Ray Liotta, who starred in the original "Field of Dreams," also make appearances.

The video pokes fun at the lockout and shows what happens to pretty much every major sports league once it moves beyond the cornfield. Check out the video below:
