    We learned two things from Michael Bergin and Jason Foster's appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Tuesday night.

    First, the ocean sunfish that starred in their viral video lived.

    Second, they love New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

    OK, so that second one probably doesn't really qualify as particulary surprising.

    Bergin and Foster, who live in Malden, Massachusetts, have become Boston-area celebrities thanks to their "That's a tuna, bro... it's a baby whale... i's a sea turtle" video. Of course, the fish they hooked wound up being a common ocean sunfish, but Bergin's expletive-laden reaction made the rounds on social media.

    So on Tuesday night, they appeared via video from Malden on Kimmel's late night show.

    "Hey Jimmy, what's up, kid? This is crazy," Bergin said.

    Bergin and Foster revealed that they let the sunfish go after catching it, and watched it swim off.

    "It swam away happy," Foster said.

    Kimmel also asked the pair for their thoughts on Brady and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

    "Oh, we love Tom Brady," said Foster, as Bergin made a "we're not worthy" bowing motion.

    They didn't have such nice things to say about Goodell, however.

    Kimmel even invited Bergin and Foster out to California to appear on the show in person, but said, "I don't want you guys going all Hollywood on us."
