If a child ate an entire ice cream cake and passed out watching Aladdin, he might dream of the exact party Adrian Peterson threw in Houston, Texas, for his 30th birthday.

The kind-of-maybe Minnesota Vikings running back turned the page on another year Saturday and appears to have shipped in someone’s cartoonish notion of a Middle Eastern/South Asian bacchanalia to celebrate.

Deadspin’s Samer Kalaf spotted photos and video posted by partygoers. Zero half-measures were taken for the party, which kicked off with Peterson riding in on a camel:

His cake was a purple-and-gold-sheathed monolith invoking the Taj Mahal:

Jamie Foxx showed up and danced to Michael Jackson, because why not?

Oh look, a gigantic ice-block bar.

Some guests dressed up as sheikhs, which may or may not have been the right theme:

And that’s how you celebrate Adrian Peterson’s birthday: with a culturally ambiguous dress-up party with monster cakes, live animals and a big open bar. It was like a sweet 16, but for a wealthy 30-year-old athlete. 

Dan is on Twitter. Jamie Foxx should be at every birthday party.
