It was a joke. I detest Velveeta. I presumed it was the least expensive cheese, or if not I don't know why anybody would buy or eat it, but that's a different topic.
I'm pretty sure the Alfredo police would send a SWAT team after anybody who attempted to make Alfredo with Velveeta.

I'm pretty sure its Parmigiano Reggiano I've been buying. But I don't currently have any to verify it.
