T-Mobile Releases Hilarious ‘Banned’ Super Bowl Commercial Featuring Tom Brady And Rob Gronkowski

Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski have teamed up off the field for a T-Mobile Super Bowl commercial that apparently won’t air during the big game.

The hilarious commercial shows how Brady and Gronkowski ended up together in Tampa Bay after some miscommunication due to poor reception from their mobile carrier.

According to T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert, the ad was supposed to run during Sunday’s Super Bowl but has been blocked because of a “protected rights deal” with the game’s official telecom sponsor, Verizon.

“Banned” may be a little misleading and clever marketing by T-Mobile. The actual reason the ad will likely not air is because Verizon paid extra for exclusive rights to air their Super Bowl ad on Sunday.
