'Old Town Road' gets a hilarious Green Bay Packers twist from da 'Manitowoc Minute' guy. Watch the video.
You've heard "Old Town Road" a bazillion times. You may never, ever, ever want to hear "Old Town Road" again.
But you've got to hear this take on "Old Town Road" if you're a Packers fan.
That's because the inescapable Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus hit has been transformed into "Green and Gold," a hilarious ode to the Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin life, starring Charlie Berens, the brains behind those viral "Manitowoc Minute" videos.
"Thirteen titles for da Packers/They don't even have ta/Be cheatin' like Tom Brady/His shoes is made for ladies," Berens sings in the video, making fun of the New England Patriots quarterback and his UGG Australia modeling gig.
"'Go Pack on my koozie/Grillin is my duty," Berens continues. "Tailgate in da church lot/with Zubaz on my booty."
And in place of Cyrus' lines, we've been blessed with this, from Sheboygan's Dane Schaefer: "Baby shows that fandom/With her foam cheddar cheese bra/And I'm searchin' seven layers/For where the tickets and the keys are."
Just six hours after posting this masterpiece on Facebook Saturday, Berens' "Green and Gold" had been seen more than 800,000 times.
The video was posted ahead of the Packers' first playoff game Sunday, against the Seattle Seahawks.
Tune in at 5:40 p.m. to see if the Packers' get closer to title number 14.
And if you're watching the game at a bar or friend's house, be sure, as Berens says in the "Green and Gold" video, to "watch out for deer on your way home," and to "tell your folks I says hi."
