Fake Tom Brady went viral when he showed up to Sunday night's game between the New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals, and now, the world is starting to learn the story behind the mask.

On Wednesday morning, Fake Brady made an appearance on the Today show, where details about the mask were revealed. The mask is so realistic you will be left in shock:


Same, @WillieGeist. #WhatsTrendingTODAY https://t.co/ruE08TJREY

In case you haven't seen who the man behind the mask is, it's Bleacher Report's own Dan Worthington:

#FakeBrady and met Renee Zellweger on the @TODAYshow! https://t.co/OMTLFuo2kU

And for those who focus on the missed high five, there's a reason it played out the way it did:

Sorry for leaving you hanging @WillieGeist. Got no peripheral vision in the #FakeBrady mask. https://t.co/I0HSf0SPTT

It's just ironic that while the real Tom Brady is known for getting left hanging, Fake Brady was able to connect on one—just not on a handshake.
