MVPuppets: Dunking on Reindeer Lyrics

Nike's latest "Puppets" spot has gone the way of the Hyperize commercial to create a viral video something or other for the Christmas, I mean, Holiday Season. The creativity is there. The cool puppetry is there. But are these videos actually good? I would say yes if the Hoof Gang actually put up a fight. But they get totally owned by the MVPuppets.

Here is the full video spot that only runs online. 2:03 is much too long to put on the ole' Television. Did you know that LeBron is voiced by Kenan Thompson of SNL and Kobe is David Allen Grier of In Living Color? Lil' Dez is some child actor. You will notice Santa getting called out by Blitzen of The Hoof Gang:

Blitzen The Reindeer a.k.a. Lupe Fiasco (The Cool, Food & Liquor) calls out Santa and the Kobe/LeBron puppets with Lil' Dez on the one's and two's:

Santa a.k.a. The Infamous KRS-One licks the rim and shows us his battle-rap response:

Below are the lyrics for those that like these sorts of things. No MP-3 released by Nike just yet:

Full Spot:

(Santa rap)
1, 2, 1, 2, King James and Kobe too
It was the day before Christmas day
I just put brand new rims on my sleigh
in the kitchen cooking, eggs and hash
I got a call from Blitzen talkin some trash, sayin

(Blitzen )
Oh saint Nicky, don’t you see
you and your boys you’ll never beat me
So you can tell Kobe and tell LeBron
that they can meet me on the court and it’ll be uh-uh onnnn

Now Blitz ice grillin, like put em up
it ain’t take long for Kobe to shut em up
Alright Blitz, the game is to 10
LeBron, check it out and show em how we get it in
(Santa )
now he all nervous, tension brewing
Vixen was trying to talk some sense into em
LeBron threw the ball and he began to giggle em, like

look at this reindeer, he can barely dribble
c’mon Bron, show some respect
he got hooves, not hands, what the heck you expect

Kobe stole the ball, crossed him up
runnin around his back, tossed it up
Vixen crying to Blitz, like

oh no, lebron took off from behind the free throw

LeBron rose up looked at him again
said, Merry Christmas Blitz and shattered the rim

The game is over, the game is over
The game is over, the game is over
Dunking on the reindeer, dunking on the reindeer
Dunking on the reindeer, dunking on the reindeer

Here are the lyrics from Blitzen/Lupe Fiasco's spot:

B to the l-i, t-z
3 suckas plus 1 me equals too e-z.
Believe me the top of your wish list
Betta read a chance to beat me
Cuz you never got that
And you never will
The thrill of the victory is something that you’ll never feel
something elves can’t build
and shout out to the workshop
you can get to 1st, 2nd, and the 3rd shot
don’t mean nothin
when the rein get to jumpin
and that deer get to dunkin
see the fear in your frontin
santa lookin shook, kobe lookin shook, lebron lookin shook
i throw the ball on the roof

Lastly, here are Santa/KRS-One's lyrics in response to that punk-ass Blitzen:

Yo, how you calling me a old timer, a old rhymer,
when i’m getting it in, in oh nine, suh
Ya’ll got issues and i’m not a subscriber
You the reindeer, i’m the driver
Kris Kringle, the gift’s in my saliva
I got every address in the hood. I’ll find ya
Ya’ll dude’s minor Kris Kringle is major
it’s a good thing it’s Christmas you gonna need a savior
you aint even —-, ya’ll nose is black
and the last rhyme you kick you know was wack
I’ll flying around the hood cruising fast
my sleigh be moving snow you eating grass
think fast stay in line you know me well
keep talking Imma ring your jingle bell
I got work to do I cant flirt with you
Kris Kringle, I’m out!
