PHILADELPHIA -- Despite the police department's preemptive plan, an application of Crisco was not enough to keep fans from climbing light poles.
Video captured one fan climbing a pole in Center City.
Before the NFC Championship Game, Philadelphia Police Department employees armed with a tub of the shortening applied it to metal poles in the city.
The workers applying the grease were jokingly calling themselves the "Crisco Cops."
Philly police had a little fun with the whole thing.
They tweeted, "Now comes the time in the night where we must warn everyone about the dangers of saturated fats. Cheer for Foles! Jeers for poles!"
Philadelphia police say few arrests were made amid celebrations following the Eagles' NFC championship game victory.
The arrests came as thousands of fans took to the streets following the Eagles' 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night. The Eagles advanced to their first Super Bowl since 2005, against the AFC champion New England Patriots.
After Sunday's game, huge crowds gathered in neighborhoods around the city. Police reported two arrests for disorderly conduct and one for assault on police. They also reported three arrests for counterfeit ticket sales.
