The New York Jets pranked their players into rating the new uniforms

After the New York Jets released their new uniforms, their social media team couldn’t help but have some fun with them. Why waste a good opportunity to pull one over the team?

They set up a classic mannequin prank to scare the players while rating the uniforms.

While the X (formerly Twitter) post about it gives the prank away, the video also shows that it largely worked.

The players were asked to rate the new uniform on what was ostensibly a No. 24 mannequin. In reality, there was a real person there to scare the players. Some were more shocked than others.

Of course, ever the suspicious mind, Aaron Rodgers asks, “Who’s in there?” Sauce Gardner also didn’t buy it, saying, “I don’t really get too scared.”

Still, it certainly worked on Tony Adams, Garrett Wilson, Jamien Sherwood, Izzy Abanikanda, and some of the other players. Adams’ reaction was particularly rewarding, as he jumped back and exclaimed loudly.

The new uniform reveal has been met with overwhelming approval from the fan base. Even though it may seem trivial, identity is at the heart of sports fandom, making sharp uniforms a key piece of team association. The players seem to like it, too, largely rating the uniform a 10 out of 10 in the video before jumping back in surprise.

Jets fans, whose reaction in the video is the best? What rating would you give this particular uniform combination? Which uniforms would you like to see in Week 1?
