Tom Brady says ‘Fake Brady’ is ‘probably the creepiest thing I’ve ever seen’
Tom Brady isn’t allowed at Patriots games for another two weeks, but an imposter has been spotted and Brady isn’t a fan.
There was a dude at Week 1’s game in Arizona and Sunday’s home game against the Dolphins wearing a hyper-realistic Brady mask. It turns out it was a stunt by Bleacher Report, which sent an employee to Arizona and had Wes Welker wear the mask in New England.

Yeah, it’s pretty scary, and you can count Brady among those who thinks the mask lies squarely in the uncanny valley.
“I spent a little time with [Welker] on Sunday morning, he showed it to me,” Brady said during his weekly Westwood One radio appearance on Monday. “It was probably the creepiest thing I've ever seen.”
