Tom Brady’s clothing line hoodie resembles the one the athlete wore in the animated version of The Simpsons
Tom Brady’s new sweatshirt design from his just-launched Brady clothing line might look a little familiar to some eagle-eyed fans.
The cotton-terry hoodie, in the brand’s signature Brady Blue colourway, is similar to the one the NFL star’s animated counterpart wore during a 2005 episode of The simpsons. The episode, titled Homer and Ned’s Hail Mary Pass, saw Homer Simpson and Ned Flanders put on a very Flemish Super Bowl halftime show.
Brady, along with LeBron James, Michelle Kwan, Yao Ming and Warren Sapp, starred in the episode, wearing brightly colored hoodies with their last names written across the chest. Brady’s hoodie was blue, with his last name printed in white, just like the sweatshirt from his new collection.
The coincidence bolsters the fan theory that older episodes of The simpsons predicting the future, with the show predicting Richard Branson’s foray into space and Disney buying Fox, among others.
