While Pitt’s narration of Brady’s legacy in football was much-appreciated, a considerable number of fans have noted on social media that the footballer didn’t have to be heaped with praise. Brady, who is quite infamous for his controversies, shouldn’t have been the one to witness Pitt’s fawning, according to several social media users. One of them tweeted, "@NFL How much did y'all pay Brad Pitt to read Tom Brady's wikipedia page?" Another irked user wrote, "Ok so Tom Brady gets a commercial about his “legacy” narrated by Brad Pitt? Why doesn’t the NFL just suck his dick a little more?" Adding to the above tweets one said, "Brad Pitt narrating a piece on Tom Brady = my personal hell. Fingernails on a chalkboard X 2." Meanwhile, one Twitter user said, "hearing brad pitt narrate tom brady's life is so strange because whenever i hear his voice my brain is just like..... "sinbad :)"
