Is Tom Brady Funny?
The answer to that question is…not really. He gave it the old college try in a new FunnyOrDie.com spot for Under Armour. Brady may have the golden life with a huge football career, a gorgeous wife, and a chin that won’t quit, but there is at least one thing he hasn’t mastered and that is comedy.
The premise of the skit is that a salesman at a sporting goods store can’t get over Tom Brady’s wicked Boston accent. The frustrated quarterback tries to explain himself but loses even more patience when other customers don’t recognize him (One lady is convinced he is Matt Damon. That I found funny.). I will give Brady credit for spoofing himself and committing to the role. And while he once claimed that modeling is harder than football, maybe now he will put acting at the top of that list.
