If you’re a Patriots fan, you know that Rob Gronkowski is one of the most well-known players of the team. He’s one of the best tight end players with a flourishing brand name. Some of his infamous PR stunts include endorsing Dunkin’ Donuts, creating a brand of frosted corn flakes named Gronk Flakes, and even posing for the camera with cuddly kittens. Gronk fans can be excited for his newest social media venture: Instagram.
Gronkowski officially joined the Instagram bandwagon earlier this week and he doesn’t disappoint! His first 1-minute video showcases his life during the off-season months. The video includes clips of him working out at the gym, completing swimming exercises by the pool, getting a haircut, and even partying with his pals at the bar.
Rob Gronkowski was drafted into the New England Patriots in 2010. He set the single-season record for most touchdowns by a tight end in the next year.
Other than Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski is one of the most entertaining players to follow. His last entertaining stunt featured him and David Ortiz sing a country song about Dunkin’ Donuts Ice Coffee. Gronkowski isn’t shy when it comes to making cameos for TV and films. He appeared with wide-receiver Julian Edelman for the Entourage movie in June 3rd, 2015. Besides his random cameos on the screen, Rob Gronkowski posed in a photo shoot with cuddly kittens back in December 2014.
It’s important to note that he isn’t just doing these appearances for a salary. Gronkowski is a charitable player who co-created the Gronk Nation Youth Foundation, a charity he and his family created to host events and create concepts to generate funds for benefitting youth charities. His next event will be The One Mission Buzz Off for Kids With Cancer where he will shave his head at Gillette Stadium to honor kids with cancer. All proceeds will be donated toward kids fighting cancer.
With all of his entertaining campaigns, Rob Gronkowski would be considered social media gold in the public relations world. Gronkowski’s brand as a Patriots player is constantly flourishing with each creative campaign he is endorsed in. His ‘box of rocks’ personality makes him the most likable and positive person for the Patriots.
