Husband of supermodel and world-renowned football deflater Tom Brady has nearly 4 million likes on his Facebook page. Today, those poor folks were gifted a video of Tom Brady sitting in his kitchen eating Halloween candy.
Brady was suspended for the first four games of the NFL season this year for allegedly deflating the footballs in a playoff game. During that month away from the team, it seems he’s just been sitting around eating chocolate. We know that when athletes do commercials, it makes for some pretty bizarre commercials—but this one takes the cake.
This video doesn’t need the slow motion, nor does it need the sultry music. It feels gratuitous. The whole time I was watching it, I felt like I was doing something wrong. Who made this video? It looks like Tom was hanging in his house watching TV when someone shows up with a camera and asks him to eat some.
Then he starts filling a duffel bag full of it. Where’s he going? Why is he packing so quickly, so urgently? What’s he running from? Roger Goodell? The whole thing gives me the creeps.
See for yourself.
