Tom Brady sat down with local Massachusetts radio station WEEI where he went on a rant against Frosted Flakes and Coca Cola. He said that we only love the brands because we’re told to through marketing.
He said, “I think we’ve been lied to by a lot of food companies over the years, by a lot of beverage companies over the years. But we still [believe] it. That’s just America and that’s how we’ve been conditioned.”
He then decided to name names!
The NFL star said, “We believe that Frosted Flakes is a food…of course they taste very good. And of course all those companies make lots of money selling those things. They have lots of money to advertise.”
He also called Coca-Cola “poison for kids.”
He said, “You’ll probably go out and drink Coca-Cola and think ‘Oh yeah, that’s no problem.’ Why? Because they pay lots of money for advertisements to think that you should drink Coca-Cola for a living? No, I totally disagree with that. And when people do that, I think that’s quackery.”
He added, “And the fact that they can sell that to kids? I mean, that’s poison for kids. But they keep doing it. That’s the education that we get. That’s what we get brainwashed to believe, that all these things are just normal food groups, and this is what you should eat.”
What do you think of his rant?
