Professional golfers Bubba Watson, Ben Crane, Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan – otherwise known as the "Golf Boys" – are back with a new video in an effort to raise awareness about the world's clean water crisis.
The video, titled "2.Oh" and released online Monday, features the "four hopelessly tone-def and rhythm deprived golfers" rapping over a booming bass about adventures on the golf course, things that rhyme with their names and causing mayhem.
In one part of the video, the men rhyme:
"Oh how the birdies love me love me love me / Almonds in bag cause they're yummy to my tummy / Pictures in my back swing, baby that ain't funny / Got my SPF on cause it's sunny sunny sunny."
The lyrics and music were written by award-winning recording artist Mat Kearney, while Ty Andre produced the three-minute video featuring the pro golfers who are also Christians.
As with their first video, "Oh Oh Oh" from 2011, "2.Oh" sees a shirtless and shoeless Watson wearing blue overalls, Fowler donning a black leather jacket and matching leather pants, Crane in a red cycling skinsuit and Mahan wearing as much fur and animal print as possible.
Despite the silly nature of the video, the faux boy band and PGA golfers are using proceeds from the song, available on iTunes, to benefit nonprofit organization charity:water.
"Imagine if you had no clean water. Imagine walking 5 hours (almost as long as it takes Ben to play a round of golf) to the nearest river to collect water for your family – water that's not even clean. Imagine giving that water to your kids," reads a statement on the Golf Boys' charity:water profile page.
"While this might seem unimaginable to us, it's a reality for 800 million people in developing countries. Every day, 5,000 kids die from water-related illnesses before they reach their fifth birthday. It doesn't have to be that way. There are simple solutions like drilled wells, spring protections and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world."
One hundred percent of the proceeds from sales of "2.Oh" will be donated to the charity, and Golf Boys supporters are invited to make direct donations via the MyCharityWater.org website.
The music video, released on Ben Crane's YouTube channel, had collected more than 1,500 "likes" within hours of being uploaded. If the statistics for the "Oh Oh Oh" music video is any indication, "2.Oh" is sure to go viral. The Golf Boys' debut video has attracted nearly 5.8 million views since 2011, with proceeds going to charities chosen by Farmers Insurance and Crane's own charitable initiatives
