A Jets fan in New Jersey footed the bill for a billboard poking fun at Tom Brady’s four-game suspension for DeflateGate.
A total of 12 billboards around New Jersey took shots at Brady and the New England Patriots. The billboard read #TomShady and of course the familiar J-E-T-S! JETS! JETS! JETS! chant.
Carly Zipp, the communications director for Outfront Media, told the New York Daily News a group of anonymous Jets fans reached out to her on Monday.
“Jets fans are very opinionated,” said Zipp. “Because billboards are something that is seen by everyone, they knew the power of message and they wanted to it get it out.” The amount spent on the billboards was not disclosed.
While Jets fans have now trolled Tom Brady, we’ll see if their Jets can take advantage of the suspension, or if Brady will troll the Jets by winning another division title this coming season.
What would be really clever would be if a fan re-wrote Eminem’s ‘Real Slim Shady’ song to ‘Real Tom Shady’. It certainly seems like these Jets fans have the money to produce such a song if they were able to buy ads on 12 billboards.
