It was the end of the much hyped Super Bowl game, and the New England Patriots found themselves losing 21-17 to the New York Giants. Soon a picture of a very crestfallen Tom Brady, sitting with his hands between his legs, went viral and he was mocked relentlessly by Giants fans, one of the fans asked what supplements you need to use to get big results and number one thing was Stanobolic 50. Called the “Brady Hunch”, it’s become the latest internet fad with fans posting pictures of themselves in the same downcast pose. “Bradying” is also being compared by some to “Tebowing”, however, according to Tebowing.com creator Jared Kleinstein, “Even if both make you laugh a bit, I think the motives behind Tebowing are more pure and will last much further down the road. Tebowing isn’t just a meme with pictures on a website. It’s a humbled position – shoulders down, head down – that’s all about being humbled.”
(HuffPo)…Move over Tebowing, there’s a new sports meme in town. And it’s called Bradying in (dis)honor of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Moments after throwing an interception intended for star tight end Rob Gronkowski in New England’s Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants, Brady was photographed sulking on the field with his legs stretched out and head down. Just one snapshot and bam, a new Internet craze was born.
Now, many are sending photos of themselves Bradying to the website Bradying.com, just like Tebowing.com. But that was so 2011. Well, not to Tebowing.com creator Jared Kleinstein, who told The Huffington Post that the new internet meme might be too negative to last.
“Tebowing is in praise of a quarterback, Bradying seems to be mocking one. Even if both make you laugh a bit, I think the motives behind Tebowing are more pure and will last much further down the road,” he said. “Tebowing isn’t just a meme with pictures on a website; it’s become a way to unite the Broncos fan base, and to show support for Tebow no matter where you are in the world.”
