A Peyton Manning tub photo is making the rounds on the Web, and the hit image of the quarterback wearing a helmet in the tub that was posted to Twitter recently seems to be a bit more than just an innocent camera capture. Some think the funny clip was posted to lightly parody another recent photo that went viral on the social media site this week, that of Gisele Bundchen being pampered by her family, MSN Sports reveals this Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013.
The Peyton Manning tub photo reflects Gisele Bundchen’s own image in that both stars can apparently mix work and play while living busy, multitasking lives. While it appears that Manning just got off the field with his helmet still on and is enjoying a foot in the tub while getting something important done on his tablet, the earlier posted photo of Bundchen shows her being able to balance breastfeeding while being taken care of by her friends and family.
Here’s a brief highlight of Peyton Manning’s viral photo:
"According to the Broncos’ official website, Manning and tight end Julius Thomas were forced to sit out of practice due to injuries earlier in the season, but they didn’t want to miss out on a single snap. With his foot in the tub, Manning donned his helmet to listen to the game calls from offensive coordinator Adam Case while following along to the game tape on his iPad. 'He heard the calls, he’d repeat them to Julius and they were kind of — it was a way for them to take two hours and stay in the game plan,' explained Gase, who laughed that he couldn’t believe the photo made it onto CBS’ broadcast last week."
Here’s a clip on that of Gisele Bundchen’s story:
"Bündchen, 33, looks beautiful as she breastfeeds baby daughter Vivian Lake Brady, who turned 1 on Dec. 5, and gets ready for an event. She is surrounded by one person doing her nails, another working on hair and another doing her makeup. Comments on her Twitter and Instagram pages include praise for her being 'a great example of working girl and mother' and 'thank you for normalizing breastfeeding.' But Denise Albert of TheMoms.com told Good Morning America on Wednesday, said breastfeeding is "a very personal choice" and called Bündchen’s post obnoxious" and "a little outrageous."
What do you think of the Peyton Manning tub parody photo? With Bundchen getting a little bit of flack from some people for her image, it seems that Manning offered his own light jab at the oft-talked about image this week.
