Watch Tom Brady’s dramatic Week 1 hype video

Tom Brady is ready for football to start.

The quarterback shared a dramatic video on social media prior to Thursday night’s NFL kickoff game, with an excerpt from “What If Money Was No Object?” by Alan Watts running as a voiceover. The montage splices together shots of Brady, Bill Belichick, and other Patriots from the most recent season and Super Bowl victory.

“What sort of a situation would you like?” the narrator reads. “If you do really like what you’re doing, it doesn’t matter what it is, you can eventually become a master of it. Therefore, it’s so important to consider this question. What do I desire?”


A mic’d up clip from Brady during Super Bowl LI is also played: “You gotta play harder! You gotta play tougher! Harder, tougher, everything! Everything we got”

The video closes with a profound quote from Watts and an image of a lion: “When you speak, it’s silent. When you’re silent, it speaks.”
