Tom Brady releases hype video ahead of Thursday’s opener

Another NFL season set to begin, another Tom Brady hype video.

The New England Patriots quarterback, perhaps one of the most entertaining NFL players on social media, once again has ushered in a new season with a video sure to get not only Pats Nation pumped up for the return of pro football but perhaps even fans of other teams as well.

With the Patriots’ home-opener against the Kansas Chiefs at Gillette Stadium later the same day, Brady took to Instagram Thursday to unleash one epic hype video.

When you are silent, it speaks.

Brady is known to drop hype videos throughout the season, not to mention the postseason as well. But the season-opener sequences are among the best.

This one features a passage from the speech “What If Money Was No Object” by British philosopher Alan Watt as well as soundtrack music from the film, “Interstellar,” per an NESN report.

The video also includes footage from the Patriots’ historic comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI when Brady says, “Gotta play tougher. Gotta play harder. Harder, tougher, everything. Everything we’ve got.”

Great stuff.

Welcome back, meaningful NFL football. You’ve been missed.
