Tom Brady might be in hot water thanks to Deflategate, but today on his 38th birthday, we’re going to take a look back at happier and carefree times. On the football field, Brady has a pretty extensive list of accomplishments — winning two MVP awards and leading the New England Patriots to four Super Bowl championships — but Brady also has a pretty great resume when it comes to pop culture moments on screens large and small.
Here are some of our favorites.
A Non-Mobile Quarterback
Tom Brady isn’t one of the many athletes to have appeared on Dancing with the Stars and with this homemade spoof video showing Tom Brady dance a jig “like a Teletubby,” he probably won’t ever be asked, either.
In this NSFW restricted trailer for Ted 2, Marky Mark and his stuffed bear try to gain access to some of Tom Brady’s finest family jewels in order to help the bear get his human wife pregnant.
Gary, The Telemarketer
Even a telemarketer can feel like an NFL quarterback sometimes in this Tom Brady commercial for the Daily MVP app. Boom shakalaka, indeed.
Tom Brady’s Falafel City
Did you want a chance to go one of the top five NFL quarterback owned-and-operated middle eastern restaurants in the South Plainfield area? Because when Tom Brady hosted Saturday Night Live in 2005, the cast made his dream come true with a sketch dedicated to Tom Brady’s Falafel City.
One of the Tom Brady’s biggest fans is Peter Griffin from Family Guy. So when Tom invites Peter to be a part of the New England Patriots after seeing him make a drunken bathroom run, only the best kind of chaos ensues, including a stadium-wide rendition of “Shipoopi” from The Music Man.
Bonus: An Army Of Deflategate Patsies
Even in the throes of Deflategate drama, leading to a four-game suspension for Tom Brady this season, there will always be a legion of devoted fans and followers who know that Tom didn’t really do it. On Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host finds a dozen such fans who are willing to confess on the quarterback’s behalf.
