One team's win is another team's loss. Over the course of the 21st century, the New England Patriots have mostly been the team causing others' losses. From dominating the AFC East, to reaching eight Super Bowls, to a seemingly endless string of improbable victories, the Patriots have caused heartbreak all over the country.
Luckily, NFL Network's Rich Eisen and Funny or Die have teamed up to help those in need:
Our latest @funnyordie collaboration brings the world PATRIOVIX: helping people protect themselves from becoming #Patriots victims in the playoffs: *consult your doctor before taking Patriovix pic.twitter.com/vtBk8PyGJv— Rich Eisen Show (@RichEisenShow) January 25, 2018
The faux-commercial starts by asking two questions: “Do you find yourself depressed every February?” and “Is it because you're sick of the Patriots standing in the way of your team's playoff hopes?” It then introduces Patriovix, a drug meant for those who are suffering at the hands of New England's pro football franchise. According to the video, it “may even stop the inevitable Brady comeback – though it cannot stop it entirely.”
Rich Eisen is not the first NFL personality to team up with Funny or Die: Patriots quarterback Tom Brady himself has played a role in multiple skits before, most prominently 2012's “Tom Brady's wicked accent”.
