Burly German tricks Super Bowl reporters into thinking that he plays for the Patriots

You'll LOL when you see him fool a couple of Twin Cities reporters.

Super Bowl Media Day is wild, whacky, crowded and mostly unscripted. As reporters, you might have a list of players and coaches you hope to throw some questions at, but a large portion of the day is spent fighting through crowds of reporters to talk to players who aren't wearing name tags.

So what do you do when you see a very large man dressed like he plays for the Patriots? You ask him some questions.

This is where Kai the German giant comes into the story. Kai, dressed nearly identically to other New England Patriots players, simply walked around hoping to get asked some questions.

Mission accomplished.

As the video below shows, he managed to fool Sports Illustrated and a bunch of media outlets from Boston and Philadelphia, he hopped in on a live Fox Sports shot and he got local Twin Cities reporters Kevin Falness and Eric Perkins. We're pretty sure he got Patriots coach Bill Belichick, too.

Even the Department of Homeland Security got him to give a shoutout.

Per usual, Falness laughed it off like the pro he is. As for his prank on Perk... it's beautiful, and Perk was his awesome reactionary self as always.

He gets Falness Perkins back to back at the 1:12 mark, and Perkins again at 6:09.
