Jamie Foxx brought some SEC swag to the Walmart shareholders’ meeting on Friday.
The actor and music artist stood by himself on stage in an Arkansas Razorbacks t-shirt, a fitting wardrobe choice given that the meetings are held at Bud Walton Arena, home of the Hogs hoops teams. Check out Foxx:

Walmart, which got its start in Arkansas, has had celebrities host its shareholders meetings in the past, including Justin Timberlake, Will Smith, Katy Perry, and James Corden.
A little research found no direct ties from Foxx or his family to the Hogs, but he is from Texas, so his roots aren’t too far away from Fayetteville. He has starred in a variety of acclaimed films such as Ray, The Soloist, and Baby Driver. Foxx is also a GRAMMY Award winner for his music work.
If Foxx breaks into a soulful call of the Hogs, we’ll bring you the video.
