Antonio Brown thought a random bald guy was a NASCAR team owner

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown thought a random bald guy in South Beach was a Grammy Award-winning NASCAR team owner.

And it wasn’t even on April Fools’ Day.

Miami-based social media user Lefty recently recorded a video of himself walking around South Beach with sunglasses and a fake entourage during Spring Break, tricking strangers into believing that he was Grammy Award-winning artist Pitbull in the process.

One “stranger” who fell for the prank was former Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Here is what Brown had to say to Lefty, who somehow managed to keep a straight face through everything.

“I f*** with your music. It’s good to see you. You got my respect.”

Brown proceeded to take pictures with the Pitbull look-a-like. Take a look.

The NASCAR Cup Series team owner — yes, the actual Pitbull — later saw the footage and was quite amused.

Pitbull joined forces with former driver Justin Marks ahead of the 2021 season to become the co-owner of the brand-new Trackhouse Racing Team.

Daniel Suarez joined the team as the driver of the #99 Chevrolet for their first season. Spire Motorsports leased out a charter for them to run the car for Suarez full-time. He finished in 25th place in the championship standings with a top finish of fourth in the dirt race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Ahead of the 2022 season, the team acquired the two-car Chip Ganassi Racing organization, giving them two charters of their own. They retained Suarez in the #99 Chevrolet, and they signed Ross Chastain, who had driven the #42 Chevrolet for Chip Ganassi Racing, to drive the #1 Chevrolet.

Just days after the fake Pitbull video, the real Pitbull got his first win as a NASCAR team owner, as Chastain earned his first career victory in last Sunday’s race at Circuit of the Americas following an exciting last-lap duel with Kaulig Racing’s A.J. Allmendinger.

Chastain sits in fifth place in the point standings after the first six races of the season, having reeled off four consecutive top three finishes. Suarez sits in a respectable 15th with two finishes of fourth.

Brown, who signed with the Buccaneers during the 2020 NFL season before they went on to win Super Bowl LV, was cut by the team this past January after his third quarter meltdown in their game against the New York Jets, leading to a controversial situation that has yet to be truly resolved.
