Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski Star In “Banned” T-Mobile Super Bowl CommercialGreg M. Cooper - USA TODAY Sports

Last spring, Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski dramatically changed the NFL landscape when they decided to join up on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a run at another Super Bowl championship.

Fast forward almost a year later, they find themselves on the doorstep of accomplishing just that as they await the Super Bowl LV kickoff.

As for what exactly inspired them to take their talents to Florida, wireless carrier T-Mobile created a commercial for the Super Bowl featuring the duo giving a fictional backstory as to how and why it all went down.

Brady shared the commercial over his social media accounts on Saturday, which is apparently one of the only ways to view the ad since according to T-Mobile, the spot was later rejected and banned from airing during the game because of a “protected telco rights deal” the NFL has with Verizon.

You can take a look at the “banned” commercial for yourself below.

“We made this amazing ad starring the amazing Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski,” a T-Mobile spokesperson said via a press release. “Even after editing, the spot was still banned ‘based on the … protected telco rights deal.’ So, watch and decide for yourself … what might the ‘official telco sponsor’ not want you to see?”

Brady and Gronkowski will look to win their fourth Super Bowl championship together as slight underdogs Sunday night in Tampa.
