Rob Gronkowski talks Tom Brady, more going undercover for Lyft

Posted on

Rob Gronkowski is unlike any character the NFL has ever seen, whether it’s for his domination on the field, partying off the field, fourth-grade sense of humor, and apparently, his skills as a Lyft driver. 

In a new video for the rideshare service, the New England Patriots star tight end followed in the footsteps of David Ortiz, DJ Khaled, Demi Lovato, and more by going undercover as a Lyft driver to prank unsuspecting passengers.

It’s hard to imagine the massive Super Bowl champion could go unnoticed in New England, but between a low-pitched voice (after first testing something higher-pitched) and a mullet wig, Gronkowski came across as a normal Lyft driver, who happens to really love astrophysics. Upon being asked what he enjoys about space, he gave a classic Gronk answer, “Black holes. Planets. Pluto.”

When he wasn’t discussing science or letting out some gas, Gronkowski shared his adoration for his beloved quarterback. “The one guy I want to meet is Tom Brady,” he said. His young female passenger wasn’t that interested in meeting Brady since he’s married, to which Gronkowski responded, “I mean, I’m not trying to get with him. I just want to meet him.”

The 27-year-old has recently been very busy off the field. Gronkowski voices himself in an upcoming episode of Family Guy, has a role in The Clapper, and hosted Nickelodeon’s Crashletes.
