Following a playoff win over the Seattle Seahawks in the divisional round, the Carolina Panthers are preparing for their fourth NFC championship game appearance. But if the players are feeling the pressure of their upcoming matchup against the fierce passing attack of the Arizona Cardinals, they sure aren’t showing it — at least not if this tweet by Jonathan Stewart is any indication.
On Friday, the Panthers running back and several teammates regaled the Twitterverse with a lip-synced rendition of Drake and Future’s “Big Rings.”
Real serious, especially cornerback Cortland Finnegan, who struggles to keep a straight face five seconds into the clip.
That wasn’t the only hype (or whatever the Panthers were trying to accomplish in the above tweet) video released this week.
Rapper Petey Pablo, a Greenville, N.C., native , recently released a track titled “Carolina Colors.” Unlike his 2001 breakout hit “Raise Up,” there is no call to action for North Carolina to “take your shirt off, twist it ’round your hand, spin it like a helicopter,” but he does point out that the Panthers are “reppin’ two states,” presumably in counter of their opponent’s single-state representation.
And then there are all the fan-made videos, of which there are many…
… but none could possibly top this next one. Ked Woodley, a 50-year-old barbecue restaurant server, took it upon himself to craft his own rap, “Dominate the Foe,” in just one take on a mid-December day. And it is glorious.
Your move Cardinals fans?
