Rob Gronkowski does not have much to worry about. The 26-year-old All-Pro tight end parties hard, plays harder and is coming off a Super Bowl championship. He recently starred in Family Feud, an energy drink ad, an ESPN commercial, an erotic novel and Entourage.
For once, Gronk had to worry. Magician Mat Franco, promoting his two-hour special Mat Franco's Got Magic, stunned Gronk with a trick. Before we ruin it, here is the video:
Franco, the winner of America's Got Talent in 2014, takes Gronk's phone and somehow transports it inside a football about 15 yards away.
To cap the trick, Franco cuts the football open to reveal the phone.
Gronk is in full Gronk stun mode. Franco proves Gronk's Kyptonite is not a high-powered defense, but magic.
Assuming the trick was filmed before the start of the NFL season, Gronk's amazement did not affect him. He recorded five receptions for 94 yards and three touchdowns in the Patriots' 28-21 win in Week 1 against the Steelers.
The Patriots return to action Sunday at Gronkowski's hometown Bills.
