Andrew Luck a fan of the ‘Capt. Andrew Luck’ parody Twitter account
There are many, many parody Twitter accounts on the internet, but the one known as “Capt. Andrew Luck” is easily one of the best. And as you might expect, the real Andrew Luck is aware of its existence.
During an interview at the Pro Bowl over the weekend, Luck shared his thoughts on the account, which now has 500,000 followers despite sometimes not producing content for long stretches of time. The brilliance is in the simplicity, and that is not lost on the Indianapolis Colts quarterback.

“It’s definitely not me. I’m not clever enough to write that,” Luck said. “It’s pretty cool. I’m glad people find enjoyment in it when some things on the internet can be a little meaner.”
The Capt. Andrew Luck account treats Luck as though he were a Civil War hero writing letters to his mother. Here’s the latest tweet that was sent after the Colts were eliminated in the playoffs by the Kansas City Chiefs:
Dearest mother —
It is with a heavy heart I inform you our campaign has ended. Our unit fell to the Chiefs on a snowy battlefield. While disappointed, I am extremely proud of all our accomplishments week after week, day after day, fight after fight. I shall see you soon.

Luck may not know the person behind the parody account, but at least he hasn’t been shut out like another prominent football figure was. We’ll be looking forward to the next update from Capt. Andrew Luck.
