Tom Brady is known for posting pregame hype videos on social media, but he brought out the Boston sports scene’s heavy hitters in his most recent video to get fans pumped up for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs.
David Ortiz, Paul Pierce, and Zdeno Chara — all championship-winning athletes — appeared in Brady’s video and talked about how lucky they were to win a championship during their careers.
“If you happen to be lucky, you will have people in your life that will tell you that the world can be anything you want it to be and you will believe them,’’ Brady began in the video he shared on Instagram and Ortiz posted on Twitter.
The video then shows highlights of Brady after winning Super Bowls XXXVI, XXXVIII, and LI, Brady with his family as a young child, clips from Brady and Pierce in high school, and Ortiz’s and Chara’s time in the minor leagues.
In true Brady hype video fashion, the quartet of Boston sports icons continued by each reciting parts of inspirational sentences.
Chara: “If you happen to be lucky.’’
Pierce: “You will be doubted.’’
Ortiz: “You will ride the bench.’’
Brady: “And you will fail,’’ (dubbed over the footage of Brady fumbling in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LII)
Ortiz: “But it’s not about luck’’
Pierce: “It’s about what you do with what you’re given.’’
The final 20 seconds of the video features highlights from Patriots, Bruins, Celtics, and Red Sox championship runs throughout the 21st century while Pierce, Chara, and Ortiz each say a line in “It’s about attitude, your action, it’s about heart. That’s what cities are made of.’’
Brady appears one final time and says “That’s what champions are made of’’ before the video ends with Brady’s classic “Let’s go’’ yell.
