Watch ‘Turkey Tom’ Brady Scare His Kids on Thanksgiving

Tom Brady Thanksgiving with Kids

Apparently Turkey Tom gives the sweetest tackles.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady showed off a more lighthearted side Thursday, when the Super Bowl winner shared a video of himself cutely scaring his kids with wife Gisele Bündchen as he jumps out of a pile of leaves wearing a costume.

Dressed warmly in coats and hats, son Benjamin Rein, 5½, and daughter Vivian Lake, 2½, are happily scampering through the pile when a giant turkey, a.k.a. Dad, emerges from the pile and begins chasing them around.

“So thankful for everyone’s support this year… Happy Thanksgiving to all! #TurkeyTom” he captioned the video he shared Thursday.

The 21-second video shows ‘Turkey Tom’ making ‘gobble-gobble’ noises as he chases after the children, ultimately tackling his son in the giant leaf pile.

Brady, 38, is currently in the midst of an undefeated season after fighting back against charges that he illegally deflated footballs during a playoff game last season.

Tom previously …this past Spring…dressed up as the Easter Bunny and surprised Benjamin as he was hunting for chocolate eggs. Benny chased him around their property and gave “the Bunny” a big hug before he ran off. That video was a Facebook post as well. I think the conversations Gisele and Tom have about these little pranks must be pretty funny. I wonder which one of them comes up with the ideas. In any case, they clearly are parents who enjoy thieir kids and are giving them fun memories.

Love him! Pat’s Rule!!!

Protect your children's privacy on

Playing with your kids is great. Using them for your own PR is selfish.

What an idiot.

Just Saying…Tom sees his son Jack on a regular basis. The paparazzi have captured lots of photos of Jack with his Boston family. All the adults involved in Jack’s upbringing have stated they get along fine and are committed to raising Jack in a loving and supportive environment. Jack’s mother just married a man with three children of his own so Jack has three new siblings in addition to Ben and Vivian.

I am wondering if you know Gisele and Tom personally? How else would you know they are “so self absorbed”? So, is everyone who occasionally post pictures of family activities on social media self absorbed?If that is the case, I would say everyone with a Facebook account is very self absorbed.

Oh and just so everyone knows. Tom’s ex and mother of Jack is Bridget Moynahan. She is on the CBS show Blue Bloods, with Tom Selleck playing her father and Donnie Walberg playing her older brother.

@ Just saying…no, not a rep…just a Pat’s supporter who lives in the Boston area, reads the local coverage of the family and has a life of my own. You, on the other hand, seem to be small minded and judgemental about people you have never met. Judging others speaks volumes about the person doing the judging…just saying.
