BOSTON, March 29 (UPI) -- Prepare for Gronk-spikes, Gronk-cruises, and all of the other Gronk-isms you can handle.

New England Patriots' Rob Gronkowski joined Instagram Tuesday.

His first post, featuring the 6-foot, 6-inch tight end using a slide, earned more than 80,000 likes in seven hours. @Gronk already has more than 500,000 followers and is following 13 people.

The video posted by Gronkowski includes the caption: "HERE WE GO BABY! #instagronk#firstgram #nofilter #obviously #gronkspike#you #laugh #me #happy #love #fun#patriots #blessed #hashtag," and a short dialogue.

"Rob what are you doing for your offseason," a man asks.

"I'm coming to Instagram," says Gronkowski, as he slides down the slide. "Wee, Instagram baby."

"It's freezing here in Buffalo," Gronkowski said in another scene. "It's time to get to Miami."

The video also features Gronkowski enjoying a spa day, getting a haircut, and of course, partying.

Gronkowski, 26, had 72 receptions for 1,176 yards, and 11 touchdowns last season. His 15 games played were the most games he's played in a season since 2011.

Gronkowski is set to make $2.25 million, with a $10 million option bonus and $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses next season. He is signed with the Patriots through 2019.
