Watch Tom Brady try (and fail) to speak German with Sebastian Vollmer

Wednesday January 18th, 2017

Tom Brady can do a lot of things, but speak German is not one of them. 

Patriots lineman Sebastian Vollmer, who grew up in Germany, tried to get his quarterback to learn his native tongue and Brady failed miserably. The lesson was actually fairly simple. All Brady had to do was repeat German calls of his touchdowns, but even that proved too difficult. 

It’s weird to see Brady show some semblance of personality for once. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him smile that much.
