Here's Jerry Jones Rapping His Way Through Another Papa John's Commercial

Categories: Sports

Jerry Jones owns the Dallas Cowboys. He also really likes/has an endorsement deal with Papa John's. That goes some ways in explaining the existence of the above video, titled "Hip Hop Jerry," in which Jones proclaims his love for the pizza chain via a rap song. It's about what you'd expect from a white, 69-year-old billionaire.

The press release that accompanies the video describes it thusly:

Team Owner Jerry Jones is hoping to top the charts with his new rap song. Jones-turned-hip-hop-star debuts his rap in a Papa John's television commercial called "Hip Hop Jerry" breaking August 25 as NFL pre-season football kicks off. The spot promotes Papa John's new Cowboys 5-Star Combo and will run in D/FW, Austin and Waco through the Super Bowl in 2013.

Known for his charisma, Jones' rap performance in the new spot is a follow-up act to a popular TV spot featuring his spontaneous and highly unlikely dance moves when a Papa John's delivery man shows up in the player locker room with a pizza he ordered.

And there's really not a lot left to say.

When I first moved here I didn't understand the deep animus aimed at Jones by Dallas fans.  Now?

There is no way in hell I'm hitting "play" on that vid.

Doesn't he also have an ownership stake in local Papa John's franchises?

 

Plus Bob Sturm hit the nail on the head when it comes to this stupid ad--weren't we past this style of faux-rap in 1992?

 @Myrna.Minkoff-Katz He fired the One True Coach, Coach Landry.

 

That is a sin that will never be forgiven, especially when it is done in as callously and humiliatingly as Jones did.

 @Myrna.Minkoff-Katz He is often referred to as "He whose name shall not be uttered lest ye be struck by lightning or have some other terrible fate befall ye."

 

His talent for leading a football team is exceeded only by his acting, singing and dancing talent.

 @gkarjr No worries. They'll only play it a gazillion times during every cowboys game this season.
