Rob Gronkowski is the life of the party.

The New England Patriots tight end is known for pulling pranks and being able to make a crowded room laugh with antics. His White House visit on Wednesday was no exception.

Gronkowski made a surprise visit to the White House briefing room during a televised briefing. He popped his head into the briefing room while Press Secretary Sean Spicer was addressing the media and asked, “Need some help?”


Spicer responded laughingly, “I think I got this, but thank you, um, maybe. … I’ll see you in a minute.”

The reaction drew laughs from reporters, and Spicer had to take a moment to sink what just happened.

“All right, that was cool,” he said after a brief pause.

The Patriots are visiting the White House to celebrate their fifth Super Bowl title.
