“Saturday Night Live” Makes Fun of Tom Brady and Deflategate in Latest Show

By Vincent Frank

For the past 40 years, the late-night sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live has continued to poke fun of the biggest stories around the United State and the world.

So it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that the long-running NBC show has given its hilarious spin on the Deflategate scandal that’s sweeping through the football world.

In its latest installation, SNL took to its Weekend Update segment in order to get New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (played by Taran Killam) to fess up to deflating the footballs (via The Boston Globe).

Killam was spot on in his hilarious portrayal of the four-time Super Bowl winner.

For what it’s worth, Brady does have a history of working with Saturday Night Live. He hosted the show back in 2005.

Raise your hand if you want to see Brady hosting the show again at some point soon. He can take a joke as good as anyone in the football world, so it wouldn’t be incredibly surprising.
