Tom Brady is fearless both on and off the football field.
The New England Patriots quarterback recently went on vacation in Costa Rica with his wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen, and their three children. Brady shared highlights from the family trip via his Facebook page, which included a photo of his kids burying him in the sand. "Someone please dig me out before training camp!" he wrote. Brady's dog came to his rescue, and in the same video, the athlete chased his children on the beach. "I have finally emerged...And found the culprits!" the 37-year-old NFL player said.
It was all fun and games until Saturday morning, when Brady uploaded a video of himself cliff diving. Bündchen egged him on, asking, "Are you gonna jump, doll?" Indeed he did, and in the caption, Brady wrote, "Never doing that again! #AirBrady." The video racked up more than 9 million views in 48 hours.
Brady's daredevil stunt elicited mixed reactions on social media. While some New England Patriots fans were impressed by his boldness, others feared for his safety and what could have—but thankfully didn't—happen after his jump.
In the Facebook comments, Thomas Mitchell said, "A collective gasp heard all over New England!" Jason Fournier added, "Jesus man! Every Pats fan just fainted watching that," while Aaron Dias wrote, "The best QB in the history of the NFL needs to be tucked away safely in a padded room. No more of that, TB12!" Perhaps Jesse Tohill summed it up best, joking, "And we all thought Gronk was the crazy one..."
Fans were similarly divided over the video on Twitter:
