Tom Brady Makes Snorlax Pokemon Card with His Huge Sideline Coat

On his way to another Super Bowl triumph, Tom Brady became an internet joke. 

During the New England Patriots' AFC Championship Game victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the star quarterback kept warm on the sidelines by wearing a comically oversized coat.

Nearly a month later, Brady joined the fun. After catching his fifth Super Bowl ring, he turned himself into a Snorlax Pokemon card on Instagram.

"Maybe a bit late to the game on this one," Brady wrote, "but my son still calls me Snorlax." 

He's also late on exploiting Pokemon's short-lived resurgence in popularity. Nevertheless, it's always refreshing to see a celebrated icon laugh at his own expense.

Well, this is another way to depict Brady.

Per Kenny Young of 100.7 WZLX, a loyal Patriots fan had a tattoo of the star passer drawn on a sensitive body part:

Brady's face may be cold without the puffy coat.
