The video went viral and received 5 million viewers ever since it was posted on the Internet.
“Thank you to everyone,” Gilbreath posted after the video became popular. “My video has gone on radio station pages, numerous websites, WorldStar Hip Hop has put it on their website, ESPN has posted it, it has already been to a few channels on TV. With 3 million views, this was done by everyone! Thank you to everyone that that has liked, commented, shared… And even laughed at my video!”
The Carolina Panthers suffered a 24-10 loss to the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl 50 at the Levis Stadium last Sunday. Cam Newton seemed to have taken the loss a bit to deeply and that was evident in the post match press conference. Ever since he bailed on his Super Bowl press conference later that evening, there has been series of analysis and outrage over his behaviour on the social media, the source notes.
Tweets and memes followed after Cam Newton failed to address the press properly. After facing a lot of criticism and flak on the social media, Newton decided to address the crowd on Tuesday. He stated in the conference, “I’ve been on record to say I’m a sore loser. Who likes to lose? You show me a good loser and I’m going to show you a loser.”
It was evident that he wasn’t there to address the audience an apology. Another series of opinions followed and also fresh round of criticism were heaped on him.
It was when super fan Gilbreath took matters in his own hands to share funny side of the story. As per the AJC blog, the video shows Mayberry Sheriff Andy Taylor sharing some advice with the Carolina Panther’s quarterback Cam Newton. The video features one of television’s most beloved character along with the famous Newton.
The video clip has a morphed face of Newton on Andy Griffith’s son Opie’s (Ron Howard) face. The famous character is seen counselling him after the loss. “Winning is great,” the sheriff says, “but learning how not to win is just as important.”
