Tom Brady shows off ponytail, dance moves in Rio

tombrady

We don’t really care about the video of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady sporting a ponytail and engaging in some limber-as-timber dance moves in Rio de Janeiro, at the annual Mardi Gras-style Carnival celebration.

But we know that some of you will care, especially if you don’t like Brady or the Patriots.

Our friends at the Big Lead have the video.  As TBL puts it accurately:  “Dancing with the Stars will not come calling.  Ever.”

And the “ponytail” isn’t really much of a ponytail.  Instead, it looks more like a junior version of the thing Mel Gibson sported in The Patriot.

Perhaps the most troubling aspect of the video is the fact that Brady apparently made himself into an Oral-B billboard for the event.  And so the guy who resisted most marketing opportunities for much of his career is suddenly a half-click away from walking around Times Square wearing nothing but UGG boots, a sandwich board, and a smile.

    Let’s run down the hater check list, shall we?

    Tall, handsome – check!
    Earns $20 million a year – check!
    Multiple SuperBowl rings – check!
    Smoking hot wife – check!
    Gets to party in Rio for Carnival – double check!

    Hate on, my friends! Hate on…

    I don’t think Tom is very comfortable dancing. But his bitch is hot!

  3. jerryloler says: Mar 8, 2011 10:31 AM

    Love the guy, but he’s the most awkward dude ever.

  4. sj39 says: Mar 8, 2011 10:32 AM

    I noticed he is starting to talk with a lisp.

  5. chapnastier says: Mar 8, 2011 10:32 AM

    Tom, seriously, cut the hair man.

  6. heyooooh says: Mar 8, 2011 10:34 AM

    Pats fans must be proud.

  7. sportsjustice says: Mar 8, 2011 10:36 AM

    At least he’s not having sex with 16 yearolds and providing them liquor. In 46 of the 50 states Mark Sanchez would be a pedophile and sex offender. Brady goes to another hemisphere with his wife and we cant leave him alone. Everyone grow up. Watch some NFL replay and have a beer during lunch.

  8. clintonportisheadd says: Mar 8, 2011 10:40 AM

    I guess those hair transplants he was rumored to be getting in Rhode Island last season took hold?

  9. weswelkerspornstash says: Mar 8, 2011 10:41 AM

    He looks like a 1980’s drugdealer off of Miami Vice

  10. jw731 says: Mar 8, 2011 10:43 AM

    Brady has single handedly taken the word “whipped” to an entire new stratosphere…

  11. riverhorsey says: Mar 8, 2011 10:43 AM

    Brady a modern day hippy, love it.

  12. tombrookshire says: Mar 8, 2011 10:44 AM

    Here I am, showing off my bald spot and bustin’ a move in the living room of my Philly row house, because I can’t afford to even go to a restaurant called Rio, let alone the city. Millionaire player married to a hot model wife. Do you think he’s worried about gas prices or where he is working next season. At least Justin Beiber now knows what he is going to look like as an adult.

  15. duanethomas says: Mar 8, 2011 10:50 AM

    Even though he won the MVP this season, this guy has jumped the shark. I know all Patriots fan will disagree, but his and The Hoodie window to win another Super Bowl has closed. Brady is Vicent Chase the Hollywood/Madison Ave/TMZ star. They will be competitive and a playoff teams for the next few years, but will never win the big one again. From the outside it looks great, inside.. its done for him and this regime.
    Btw….The Jets have the same issue, they won’t win because of their QB.

  16. deepthreat says: Mar 8, 2011 10:51 AM

    Looks more like Marcia Brady…

  17. krow101 says: Mar 8, 2011 10:51 AM

    Tom has a hot wife. But I think he plays for both teams. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  18. coffinberry says: Mar 8, 2011 10:55 AM

    Tom must be a fan of An Idiot Abroad.

  19. flavordave says: Mar 8, 2011 10:59 AM

    The white community would like to take a moment to, again, apologize for these dance moves. We would also like to commend Tom on his greatest achievement: Gisselle.

  20. savocabol1 says: Mar 8, 2011 11:02 AM

    Whoa, for a second there I thought I was on TMZ.com or something……

  21. laxer37 says: Mar 8, 2011 11:04 AM

    First UGG boots, and now a ponytail???

    Maybe his supermodel wife is just a cover.

  22. dg0122 says: Mar 8, 2011 11:09 AM

    yeah and the other vid shows Gisele kissing on him and then him grabbing her ass:
    Scoreboard Tom Brady

  23. mrconnors says: Mar 8, 2011 11:10 AM

    He needs to quit acting like a sissy and start focusing in these playoff games. Ever since 2004, when the defense went downhill, he’s been horrific.

    3 turnovers in the Broncos game, he was the sole reason they lost that game. He threw the game sealing pick against the Colts. He scored 14 points with the best offense ever in the SB. 4 TO’s against the Ravens. Another chokejob against the Jets.

    It was easy for him when he was passing for 140 yards and the defense was shutting down the Greatest Show on Turf. Or when he had a million three-and-outs against the Eagles, and the defense again bailed him out, forcing 4 turnovers.

    He and Peyton Manning are the exact same. The only time Peyton won, his running game and defense carried him. QB’s are so overrated, it’s a joke.

  24. ampats says: Mar 8, 2011 11:12 AM

    Actually it looks like he cut the length of his hair.

    Good to see TB enjoying his offseason with his family. You can still see he has a boot on his foot.

    Bring on the hater comments, as TO says, you love to hate me (NE Patriots)

    The other QB from NY can be found around 2:45 at a local high school parking lot in CT picking up his GF

  25. 8man says: Mar 8, 2011 11:17 AM

    Gonna have to agree with mrconnors. Brady has not been sharp in the post season for some time.

    He was 10-0 at one point. Since then 4-5. And the team finishes with the best record in the league and absolutely tanks in a home playoff game against a squad they pummeled 45-3? The results speak for themselves.

  26. watrat says: Mar 8, 2011 11:18 AM

    I think its a soccer jersey and not necessarily a walking billboard.

  27. citizenstrange says: Mar 8, 2011 11:25 AM

    Laissez les bon temps rouler! Happy Fat Tuesday Everybody!

  28. joetorious says: Mar 8, 2011 11:31 AM

    I’m convinced that Brady is Amanda Knox’s (exchange-student-turned-murderer) twin sister.

    Gisele Bundchen – hottest “beard” ever.

  30. vatechhokie says: Mar 8, 2011 11:36 AM

    All the guy is doing is moving around a bit while watching the floats go by. What guy doesn’t do the same thing while at a club when some hot chicks are dancing on the floor. Now the ponytail… that’s another story. But in any event, this is not news!!! Obviously a slow news day at PFT.

  31. Deb says: Mar 8, 2011 11:38 AM

    Oh good grief, visiting Rio in March has nothing to do with losing a playoff game in January. Credit where it’s due–the guy has won three Super Bowls, four AFC Championships, and countless division titles. He knows how to focus when the time comes.

    Having said that … really really really bad hair day. But the wife doesn’t seem to mind.

  32. bengalanthony13 says: Mar 8, 2011 11:39 AM

    Who’s watching his kids?

  33. cardiovascularendurance says: Mar 8, 2011 11:43 AM

    mrconners- But its Michael Vick’s fault the Eagles couldn’t get to the SB and Aaron Rodgers had nothing to do with the Pack winning it, right?

  34. flyinhighwithvick says: Mar 8, 2011 11:44 AM

  35. 1972wasalongtimeago says: Mar 8, 2011 11:44 AM

    I guess it’s possible to love and hate a guy at the same time. And watching these videos make me love him more and hate him more.

  36. patsfiend says: Mar 8, 2011 11:54 AM

    Reality check:

    – He’s been in a walking boot since he had surgery on his foot, and he’s not exactly the next James Brown of dancing, anyway.

    – It’s the offseason. He’s always shown up in shape… or as in shape as a ninny like Tom can be, and hits all the voluntary workouts.

    – His wife is Brazilian, and super hot. Carnivale is like their 4th of July but better. If your wife was Brazilian and hot you’d go there, too.

    – The fact this is on a “news” site is just so pathetic. Do you all realize that if there is no season we are going to have month after month of this crap?

    A la Simmons… I will not gargle ink toner in the office bathroom.

  37. sourdough says: Mar 8, 2011 12:01 PM

    Nice to see Tom spending quality time w. his kids in the offseason….

  38. east96st says: Mar 8, 2011 12:05 PM

    I have no love for Brady, the Pats, or anything that even carries a trace of Boston on it. But the guy is on vacation with his wife and he’s having some fun. Leave him alone. We’ve all had a few beers and done things we wouldn’t want on YouTube when we’ve been on vacation. As for the Oral B shirt, looks suspiciously like a South American soccer jersey. Maybe the local team or the team that plays for his wife’s hometown? Even if it’s nothing but a crass advertisment, the guy’s allowed to promote whatever product he wants. Given the lack of dental hygenie of most NE fans, you could consider it a public service announcement.

  39. 4sharita says: Mar 8, 2011 12:09 PM

    Did you see Gisele is wearing a Pantene Pro V shirt? I’m serious. Somehow… that’s really hot!

  40. cylondetector says: Mar 8, 2011 12:13 PM

    Duane Thomas – you need to go back to telling us ‘1st Bishes”.

    Believe it or not, it made you sound more intelligent than what you just typed.

  41. godofwine330 says: Mar 8, 2011 12:13 PM

    You guys at PFT have nothing else to talk about? Is he on vacation? Yes? Then leave him be. He went to Rio to get away from the likes of the paparazzi.

  42. karlpilkington says: Mar 8, 2011 12:14 PM

    I was there and did not see him. If I did see him, I would have laughed in his face. Such a tool.

  43. thenewenglandpatriots12 says: Mar 8, 2011 12:16 PM

  45. Rhode Island Patriots Fan says: Mar 8, 2011 12:20 PM

    So, this is the face of the players’ planned lawsuit to right the alleged wrongs against NFL players? Dancing to the rhythms of the Samba at the Brazilian Carnival, with a supermodel wife in one arm, and a four-year $72MM contract extension ($48.5MM guaranteed) in the other. The highest-paid player in the NFL. Fans can only dream of being treated so “unfairly” by owners like Bob Kraft.

    So because he’s seen out without them, that means he hasn’t spent any time with them?

    Ugh. The intelligence level of some of you is frighteningly low.

    Oh I don’t know…maybe a babysitter just like everyone else does. Or does that make him a bad person to.

    Maybe you think nobody in Brazil is qualified to look after a child? Nice.

  49. cliffcla says: Mar 8, 2011 12:43 PM

    Oh come on, give him a break. He was obviously tanked. Who dances great when there tipsy. Listen to him say “ The Clostumes are great” Hes on vacation…..

  51. august1969 says: Mar 8, 2011 12:48 PM

    I am from Boston and now live in South Beach…if you wear a Pats jersey no one talks to you. Put on a soccer jersey, and its all smiles from the international women.

    Just playing the game.

    _______________________________

    Batting 1,000 on the stupidity scale, but what can anyone expect from a Cheatriot fan. The girl Sanchez was with was 17 not 16. She went to the club with her mother who introduced her to Sanchez. 16 is the age of consent in 40 of the 50 States. Sanchez told her he’d love to talk with her, but couldn’t take her home until she turned 18. She and her mother informed Sanchez the age of consent was 16. Thanks for playing, but the scumbags still reside in Mass.

  53. 3octaveFart says: Mar 8, 2011 12:52 PM

    He may be rich, he may be successful, but man, he sure is p-whipped.

  54. pwall1 says: Mar 8, 2011 12:54 PM

    He looks like a soccer player. Maybe that was the point of the hair?

    But really, Brady could run into a burning building full of orphans and save them all… and I’d still hate him.

  55. jefedejefes13 says: Mar 8, 2011 1:04 PM

    His old lady is a model but I honestly have seen prettier/hotter girls at the mall. She’s not all that. And these people commenting here that Tom is handsome……Dude looks like that guy from the movie mask in these vids. Thumbs down if you approve of this message.

  56. getweird4u says: Mar 8, 2011 1:04 PM

    Ok someone explain to me why in the hell i just watched that video ? Gossip and celebrity watching makes me wanna puke…iq just fell 8 to 10 points for having been here.

  57. roxtar10 says: Mar 8, 2011 1:09 PM

    I watched the video and it starts to pan over the crowd and my first thought was, “That chick is pretty big!”…until I realized THAT was Tom Brady. Dude…cut the hair!

    As for the dancing – it’s just nice to see this guy doesn’t quite have everything going for him…

  58. favrelous says: Mar 8, 2011 1:16 PM

    How can anyone say anything bad about the man that gets to grab Gisele’s ass.

  59. bigbluefan1 says: Mar 8, 2011 1:20 PM

    Lets see now the NE haters are calling him gay?

    Yes he is a white guy and can not dance and yeah his hair a bit long

    But SB Champ 3 times
    Married to one of the hottest women on the planet
    Has a kid with another VS model

    Before he settled down he used to go to the VS show and use it at his dating service

    Tom Brady while he does not play for the jets has to have the happiest woody johnson in the world

  60. east96st says: Mar 8, 2011 1:46 PM

    sourdough says: “Nice to see Tom spending quality time w. his kids in the offseason….”

    So, in the extremely unlikely circumstances, that you get married and actually convince some woman that it’s wise to continue your genetic code, you plan on spending every moment with your children every day until they go to school and, even then, be there everyday after school until they are grown and leave the house? I’m guessing one of your kids kills you before he/she hits 14. If I’m on the jury, I’m letting them walk. It was self defense.

  61. roofdog6969 says: Mar 8, 2011 1:46 PM

  62. dannymac17 says: Mar 8, 2011 2:09 PM

    he looked like a young girl on extacy at a rave with the dance moves and bottle of water in hand

  63. ampats says: Mar 8, 2011 2:36 PM

    Do any of the well educated people on this site understand that in Brazil,it is summertime around 90 + and Brady is wearing a local soccer jersey?

    Maybe it is hot and humid which makes sense for how he looks in the picture with Giselle?

    No better to make stupid comments

  64. CKL says: Mar 8, 2011 2:47 PM

    weswelkerspornstash says: Mar 8, 2011 10:41 AM

    __________________________

    HAHAHA…good one. This isn’t even the goofiest one out there from that trip…there’s one of him wearing a headband & lounging poolside.

    Maybe he needs to do shampoo commercials and/or embracing the hair talk like Clay M and Troy P so people will stop calling him “gay” for having long hair and playing football? Or maybe there are just different standards for him than there are for other football players? Hmmm…fan hypocrisy? Never.

  65. byndpst says: Mar 8, 2011 4:47 PM

    yeah, white boy can’t dance, but I would love to see him in nothing more then a sandwich board & a smile! :P forget the uggs.

  66. pattunya says: Mar 8, 2011 7:40 PM

    As a Pats fan I’m happy he’s not executing dogs or assaulting women in restrooms. …..But this is embarrasing.
