Video: Peyton Manning Reclaims "Worst Rapper Ever" Title in New DirecTV Ad

Hot on the heels of Peyton Manning's awkward dancing to "Rocky Top," which won the Internet via memes, GIFs and Vines, the Quarterback King of All Media is once again showing off his nonexistent skills in another medium: rap. In a sequel of sorts to last year's DirecTV ad, Peyton and little brother Eli Manning tout the service's new fantasy football channel in a "song" featuring weird special effects plus cameos by dad Archie Manning, Joe Namath and music-video-style hotties aplenty. As for Peyton's flow, he makes Shaquille O'Neal seem like Jay Z by comparison. Thank heavens he's good at football. Check out another screen capture and the extended version of the clip below.
