Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski star in awesome Super Bowl commercial about retirement

Many people watch the Super Bowl because of the advertisements. Companies usually save their best commercials for the big game, when millions of people tune in to see who will hoist the Lombardi Trophy. 

This year, T-Mobile put together one of the best ads, some would say, of all time. The commercial tells the story of Tom Brady taking his talents to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after 20 years with the New England Patriots. 

Rob Gronkowski joins him in the ad, telling Brady to join him in retirement in Florida during a phone call that featured lousy cell phone reception. 

Of course, Gronkowski came out of retirement to join Brady in Tampa Bay. He'll hope to win his fourth Super Bowl title on Sunday while Brady goes for his seventh in 10 appearances. 

Meanwhile, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs will try to be the first team since Brady and the New England Patriots in 2003 and 2004 to win back-to-back Super Bowls.
