Tom Brady first threw shade at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell with an ad that aired right after the Super Bowl on Sunday.
And the star Patriots QB doesn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon.
During the parade down Boston’s streets celebrating the Patriots’ comeback Super Bowl victory against the Falcons, Brady rode in a duck boat that was draped in a T-shirt sporting the words, “Roger that,” along with a picture of five rings. (We noticed that the newest addition is positioned on, er, a. . . certain finger.)
The slogan echoed Brady’s punchline in the now-infamous Shields MRI ad, where he playfully gloats over his fifth Super Bowl win: As a Shields worker informs him he’ll need a bigger locker to fit all his rings, Brady responds, “Roger that.”
Several fans also seemed positively gleeful about the ad: Many toted signs in the freezing weather with Brady’s slogan emblazoned on paper and cardboard.
