Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski smashing a LEGO bust of Steve Harvey was, as many scoial media users predicted, a scripted part of the live New Year’s Eve coverage.
Social media was very taken with the New Year’s Eve moment in which former American Footballer Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski did his signature spike touchdown on a LEGO bust of Family Feuds host Steve Harvey.
“What are you doing?” Harvey says in the clip. “Are you serious? I don’t want to work with him no more. Why is he here? Why are you here? What is wrong with you? You are mentally imbalanced.”
TMZ Sports caught Harvey on Saturday and asked him about the viral television moment. “That was an act, Gronk’s a cool dude, I like him,” the presenter said.
When asked if he could have kept the LEGO bust for his own home, Harvey seemed doubtful: “My wife ain’t going to let me put no LEGO statue of myself up in our house anyway so it wasn’t going to happen.”
Fox will be screening LEGO MASTERS from Wednesday, February 5 at 9.00pm ET/10.00pm PT.
