Easter Bunny Apologizes to Tom Brady for Junk Food Transgressions

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterMarch 19, 2013

Tom Brady went a long way to prove the Easter Bunny makes for a horrible receiver. 

Sure, you may have assumed the cuddly holiday mascot might lack the talent to make him a great football player, but thanks to a interesting candy campaign, we have video proof. 

Because you really shouldn't leave important business for later, here is a video of Tom Brady hitting the Easter Bunny in the head with a football. 

I would like to remind you all to take out your respective bucket lists and cross out that particular line item right now. 

Now I am sure there are a few of you who are a tad bit confused at the moment. Not to worry, BostInno reports on an ad campaign by UNREAL, a candy company hoping to raise awareness about junk food nutrition. 

The candy brand launched last year with the help of Nicky Bronner, a Brookline native who had already garnered the support of Brady, his supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen and Babson President Len Schlesinger by age 15. His goal was to take the “junk” out of “junk food,” and the company has since launched a natural version of five of our artificially flavored favorites, including M&M’s, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Snickers.

Hopefully, the sight of Brady hitting a bunny in the head now makes sense. If not, here is a video of Brady advising the Easter Bunny on the finer points of a touchdown celebration. 

The bunny is going on an apology tour of sorts and also has commercials with John Legend and Jillian Michaels. 

It's all an effort to make amends for years and years of extolling the wonder of candy, to which we say, "It's all good."

By all means, keep the junk food coming and we will go ahead and forgive you ahead of time. 

Hit me up on Twitter for more holiday hilarity.
