Watch out Young Money – the Manning bros are coming for you!
It looks like we can officially add “rap artist” to Eli and Peyton Manning’s resumes. The quarterback brothers who are often seen playing against each other on the field, teamed up for another track titled “Fantasy Football Fantasy,” promoting DIRECTV’s new Fantasy Zone Channel. This release comes a year after their “Football on Your Phone” attracted over 8 million YouTube views.
The new video features a few familiar faces within the football world including Giants’ offensive tackles Justin Pugh, Will Beatty, and the newly-retired Chris Snee. The Mannings took full advantage of their celebrity contacts and convinced Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath, to make a cameo along with Jets’ running back Chris Johnson. They even got Papa Manning to make an appearance!
With preseason in full swing, Fantasy Leagues getting set-up, and the official start to the season just around the corner, it is fair to say the release of this new track was nothing but strategic. Football is finally back ladies and gentleman! Ahh, it feels like I’ve been waiting forever to be able to say that. It’s great seeing the SuperBowl-winning brothers have some fun, but it’s time to switch the fitted caps for helmets and get down to business!
