Hours before Keim was set to make the No. 1 overall draft pick, he received prank trade offers from someone who sounded a lot like Jon Gruden.
It was someone who sounds a lot like him.
It was Frank Caliendo, the man of a thousand voices.
Caliendo is famous for doing impressions, and his Gruden impression is one of the most well known, especially among sports fans.
But Caliendo didn’t just stop at Gruden for Keim. Caliendo pulled out all the stops to get Keim to believe the trade discussions were serious.
Caliendo shared the story on the Dan Patrick Show.
Caliendo impersonated Jay Glazer, Ian Rapoport and Adam Schefter in separate calls to Keim. Eventually Keim reached out to Schefter, who caught on and asked Caliendo what he was doing.
Keim called in to the Dan Patrick Show to give his side of the story.
Keim says he actually contacted Oakland Raiders general manager Mike Mayock because he thought he did “three or four trades with the Raiders” before finding out it wasn’t really Gruden calling him.
Caliendo is the GOAT.
