Video: Simon Zebo and Paddy Jackson play Kanye and Jay-Z in absolutely brilliant rap lip-sync

If you thought that Paddy Jackson lip-syncing the words to the JCB song could be never topped in Irish rugby circles, you were wrong. Very wrong.

We were already aware of the musical talents of both Paddy Jackson (JCB song) and Simon Zebo (sometime DJ in Cork nightclubs) but on this evidence, their ability as a duo far surpasses anything they have done on an individual level to date.

During some leisure time on the Irish rugby tour of North America recently – obviously a good few days ago seeing as Zebo has been with the Lions Down Under for the best part of a week – the Ulster out-half and Munster winger hooked up for a quite brilliant version of ‘Otis’ from Jay-Z and Kanye’s 2011 album ‘Watch the Throne’.

The clip went huge on the internet overnight thanks to the lads over at Balls.ie and quite a number of people gave us the heads up over Twitter and Facebook in the early hours of this morning, hardly a surprise considering that this just might the finest clip you’ll see all year.

Thanks for this Paddy and Simon, it’s epic.
