Tom Brady and Other Famous Athletes Read Letters from Peyton Manning in Hilarious ESPYs Skit (Video)
The 2016 ESPY Awards had plenty of serious, thought-provoking, and emotional moments. Banana Boat Buddies Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, and LeBron James opened the show by calling on fellow athletes to speak out against injustice and violence. And legendary NBA sideline reporter Craig Sager brought down the house with a moving speech after accepting the Jimmy V Perseverance Award.
But it wasn’t all serious. The 2016 ESPYs also had plenty of laughs. Host John Cena‘s opening monologue was pretty damn funny. And the Peyton Manning skit was hilarious.
Of course, you read the words “Peyton Manning skit” and you probably assume the guy was in it. After all, Peyton has demonstrated a obvious knack for comedy over the course of his career. But he wasn’t actually in this skit. Instead it featured guys like Tom Brady, Derek Jeter, and Eli Manning reading fake letters from Peyton Manning in which the retired NFL legend talks shit and plugs products.
The first minute is just kind of okay. But then you get to Derek Jeter, and from there you don’t stop laughing. Take a look:
It’s funny because Peyton would use a Groupon for Red Lobster.
