What in the holy heck is going on with Tom Brady’s hair? (photo)

Goodness gracious. With his supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen at his side, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady attended the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute gala benefit on Monday evening in New York. A to-do attended by only the brightest and best of the who’s who of high society, it is where the beautiful people hobnob and rub elbows with other beautiful people as they all try to outdo each other with sometimes stunning (and other times off-the-wall) attempts at teetering on the always-perilous cutting edge of fashion.

As you can plainly see, Mr. Brady debuted some kind of new hairdon’t as he mingled with the jet-setting fashionistas and fashionistos. It’s difficult to put one’s finger on exactly what Brady is trying to pull off with this heavily gelled, garishly coiffed hairstyle — a fauxsidehawk, perhaps, whatever that means? A stirring tribute to Zippy the Pinhead? A more stylized version of the ‘do sported by Billy Bibbit in One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest? Who knows, but one thing is for certain: there is an inordinate — almost irresponsible — amount of product in his hair. If some kind of waterfowl were to accidentally land in Brady’s locks, it would require a few people and a lot of Dawn dishwashing detergent before that bird could be released back into the wild.

If anything, this pic certainly belongs alongside the “Most Embarrassing Tom Brady Photos Ever”, that’s for sure.

Perhaps those who ardently follow Tom Brady’s hair escapades — and frankly, who doesn’t? — saw this new hairdo coming via a slow evolution of sorts that was initially exhibited by how Brady wore his hair at the Kentucky Derby on Sunday:


Jeez Louise, Tom. What’s going on, dude? This has to end and it has to end now. If not for yourself, for the poor and innocent waterfowl.
