Tom Brady’s Super Bowl coat has Twitter likening him to ‘Inspector Gadget,’ ‘Zoolander’

Tom Brady couldn’t catch a break on Sunday, both on or off the field.

Before the Patriots quarterback even picked up a football, tweets started pouring in about the outfit he wore to the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, which consisted of sunglasses, earbuds, a black turtleneck and a double-breasted trench coat.

Brady was only on camera for a few seconds, but that was apparently long enough for his ensemble to draw comparisons to Inspector Gadget; Zoolander; a divorced mother who just won "custody of her kids"; and even Audrey Hepburn from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”

Others likened his look to a supervillain or foreign assassin, though not necessarily a good one.

And dozens more — including former MSNBC personality Ronan Farrow — floated a humorous theory that Tom Brady is actually just three kids stacked atop each other, as if they were trying to sneak into an R-rated movie.

In fairness, this isn’t the first time Tom Brady has embraced this style; he’s worn trench coats to previous games, and even appeared at press conferences sporting the look. He’s won praise for a few of them, too, despite some critics.

It's also currently unclear who designed Brady's jacket, although both Sandro and Zara offer similar gray trench coats for $275 and $249, respectively, and Helmut Lang has a lovely double-breasted number for $1,195, albeit just for ladies.

The latest backlash will likely do little to prevent Brady from making similar clothing choices next season, either: As another star quarterback has already proven, you can wear whichever ridiculous coat you want as long as you accessorize with a Super Bowl ring:
