Robert Griffin III was one of the most successful college football players of his generation.
Although injuries robbed him of what could have been a strong NFL career, RGIII remained a fan favorite throughout the entirety of his stint in the league. From there, he was able to convert all his built up goodwill into a lucrative broadcasting gig with ESPN.
These days, RGIII is still one of the most recognizable football personalities around.
Which explains why when his wife, Grete, posted a peculiar image of him this week, it immediately went viral.
The visual largely speaks for itself:

Interestingly enough, this isn’t the first time in recent weeks that the Griffin clan has set the internet ablaze.

If past is prologue, it’s safe to assume that this won’t be the last time Mr. and Mrs. RGIII ultimately go viral in the foreseeable future.
What will they blow up for next?
Time will tell.
