Eric revealed the awards show hack to ET, and he was rightfully quite impressed with himself.

"I'm like meat at a butcher shop," joked Eric, after revealing the blue pack. "They're still a little chilly down there. Feels good."

"I let everybody know about it," he continued. "I don't know why people don't copy me."

For the record, he also put this hot tip for staying cool on his Instagram, even getting a little suggestive. "Keeping ALL myself cool on my way to the #emmys2015," Eric suggestively wrote.

The actor also kept pretty cool about Modern Family's chance to snag a 6th consecutive Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series, overtaking Frazier as the most winningest comedy of all time.

"It would be amazing," Eric admitted. "I don't know that it's gonna happen. We didn't know that it would happen last year. I think our show's still very good, we've got some stiff competition."

While keeping humble about the show, Eric did dish about Sofia Vergara's upcoming wedding to Joe Manganiello.

"I'm excited, it's gonna be a party. No doubt about it, it'll be a party."

Just don't expect any of the cast to play any jokes on Sofia.

"We don't really mess with Sofia," he said. "She's got a big, tough fiance."
