San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy admitted to faking it in the middle of games this week to show his teammates he’s calm under pressure.

Purdy’s recognition comes after he did an impression of SpongeBob SquarePants’ laugh during Super Bowl LVIII Opening Night.

Purdy did of Mr. Irrelevant, as the last pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, to play in the Super Bowl in his second professional season.

During that rise from third-string quarterback to legitimate NFL starter, the 24-year-old dipping into his Nickelodeon knowledge could help the 49ers be one of the league’s best teams.

“SpongeBob SquarePants” debuted on Nickelodeon five months before Purdy was born in 1999.

“Growing up, my dad was pretty good at imitations,” Purdy said Wednesday. ‘And so I think I picked up on him. Whether it was family, friends, teammates growing up, I feel like I’ve always done some imitations.’

“I don’t know, I’ll do it sometimes when we’re in the scramble or something just to show them, “Okay bro. He is calm, he is nice and collected here. He’s joking. So it’s all good,” Purdy continued.

“So I feel like there are times and moments where I do that, but I don’t go around trying to copy everybody all the time,” Purdy added.

Purdy can break into an impression of the beloved animated children’s character in the middle of Allegiant Stadium during Super Bowl LVIII against the Chiefs.

If San Francisco wins the Super Bowl, Purdy would become the fourth Mr. It becomes irrelevant to do so. He would be the first quarterback selected with the final NFL Draft pick to win a championship.
