Antonio Brown unveils dramatic ‘Let’s get to work’ hype video

Antonio Brown has been doing his part to ratchet up the excitement surrounding his celebrated arrival to the Oakland Raiders organization, and the enigmatic wide receiver continued to do so Monday with a dramatic hype video.

The well-produced video is summarized by the tweeted message, “Let’s get to work.” In it, critical and negative headlines swirl around Brown, who is shown engaged in an intense workout.

The hype video also includes Brown catching passes from and bonding with Raiders quarterback Derek Carr. Jon Gruden is also featured in the footage, in which he calls Brown the “best wide receiver in football” and repeats the wideout’s trademark catchphrase, “Business is Boomin’.”

Brown to no surprise is making a concerted effort to do some damage control while ingratiating himself to Raider Nation. Brown presumably hopes by doing so it will also help rehabilitate an image that took a serious hit due to his antics while forcing his way out of Pittsburgh.

How well things go for Brown in that regard remains to be seen, but odds are Raiders fans are thrilled to simply have him on the team and expect nothing but big things out of the superstar wide receiver while wearing the Silver & Black.
