While newly crowned Super Bowl champ Tom Brady waits for NFL training camp to reopen, the seven-time winner of the Vince Lombardi Trophy is having some fun upping his social media game.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback took to Twitter earlier this week to ask fans what he’s supposed to do for the next five months, then he returned to the platform Thursday night to show us that he might be looking to add “social media GOAT” to his list of achievements.
After pop star Justin Bieber shared a throwback pic from his Baby days with the caption, “Your boy,” Brady snappily replied with his own retro snap in which he posed with a baby goat.
In 2010, Bieber jokingly accused Brady of copying his hairstyle in a freestyle rap in which he sang, “Sacked like a sacker. Call up Mr. Brady. Tell him to leave his hair to the guy who sings Baby.”
At the time, Brady told reporters he wasn’t looking to mimic the babyfaced pop star, just trying to change things up.
“You know, I’ve never listened to his music … Julian (Edelmen) looks more like Bieber,” Brady said to the Boston Globe.
Brady has been having fun with his squeaky clean image recently, participating in a Mean Tweets segment on Jimmy Kimmel and allowing himself to get a little drunk at the Bucs’ championship boat parade following the team’s 31-9 win over Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs earlier this month.
Brady’s boat escapades also included tossing the Lombardi trophy, which he declared “the riskiest pass I threw all season.” The five-time Super Bowl MVP also reshared a Twitter post that captured video of him stumbling at the parade, writing, “Noting to see her…just litTle avoCado tequila.”
Boston Red Sox outfielder J.D. Martinez cemented the moment on a T-shirt that he debuted as MLB Spring Training opened this week.
“Noting to see her… just litTle sPrInG tRaInInG,” the Red Sox wrote, to which Brady replied, “Lol … I will never live this down.”
