Sunday's viral video of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady throwing three straight passes perfectly into a Jugs machine, which has accumulated over nine million views on Twitter alone, was reportedly altered.
"I think that's fake. In fact, I was told it is," Albert Breer of The MMQB reported Monday. "But for it to be fake ... holy crap, did the editor freaking crush it."
Although the video appeared too good to be true, the editing was seamless and made it appear Brady was playing a casual game of catch with the machine.
It's been an impressive offseason of generating social-media impressions for the seven-time Super Bowl champion, whose memes leading up to Capital One's The Match also generated plenty of attention.
