When Jared Goff was at California from 2013-15 he was arguably one of the most recognizable people on campus. Same can probably be said for when he’s out in public in the Los Angeles area after leading the Rams to the playoffs last season in his second year in the league.
But would he get noticed with a wig, some neck tattoos and a fake mole on his cheek? Apparently not, based on a prank video he was recently a part of involving the Ventura Community College football team.
Dubbed “The Transfer,” the Red Bull-sponsored prank cast Goff as Dre Fogue, who showed up one day at a Ventura practice with long hair, tattoos and even a mole to help conceal the 6-foot-4, 210-pound NFL quarterback’s identity. His arrival was met with disdain by most players, with Goff suspecting “I’m not going to be very popular” with his new teammates.
After acting like a prima donna and badly missing on his first few throws, Goff began unleashing superbly accurate passes that slowly won over many Ventura players. Eventually the team’s coach, one of two people on staff who were in on the prank, revealed Goff’s true identity.
