Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski gave rides to unsuspecting passengers in New England as the star of Lyft’s latest undercover driver video.

The clip features a collection of riders who don’t recognize Gronk, even though it was pretty obvious since he’s says things only Gronk would ever say. Plus, his disguise isn’t the greatest, comprised of just a pair of sunglasses, a baseball cap, and a blonde wig.

Like his pal David Ortiz, the Patriots star somehow was able to fool the passengers and even created a few hilarious moments in the process.

One highlight involved a conversation with a female rider about Gronk’s “man crush” on Tom Brady. The tight end got distracted by the discussion and ended up missing a turn.

“You can’t stop thinking about him putting lotion on his body?” the passenger joked.

“I’ve always had a man crush on him,” Gronk replied.

Another memorable moment came when one man claimed that he met Gronk at Society on High in Boston. Although he didn’t want to blow his cover, Gronk was quick to call the rider out.

“Dude, I was not at Society on High,” the Patriots tight end proclaimed after revealing his identity to the passenger.
