Students' LEGO mural of Tom Brady, Bill Belichick is mesmerizing


The New England Patriots' run to (another) AFC Championship Game has brought out the best in everybody.

WBZ's Liam Martin shared a pretty awesome example Monday from Brown Elementary School in Peabody, Mass. What appears to be a LEGO mural of Tom Brady turns into something much more cool.

Your eyes aren't deceiving you: The mural actually morphs from Brady into Patriots head coach Bill Belichick as you walk from right to left, thanks to special angled LEGOs.

The students at Brown Elementary assembled the trippy mural themselves using more than 20,000 LEGOs designed by artist Rob Surette. But there was a twist: Surrette didn't tell the students what the finished product would look like.

"I told the kids, this is a marathon of a project," Surrette told WBZ. "I’m not going to tell you what it is, but you can guess. So half the fun is now the kids guessing."

After the students finished, Surrette revealed the final result at a school assembly, where the room "erupted with cheers."

We can see why.

The Brown Elementary students will be hoping the mural is a good luck charm this weekend, as New England travels to Kansas City to play a talented Chiefs team in the AFC Championship Game.
