Giants Fan's "You Down with J.P.P." Video Tribute

New York Giants defensive star Jason Pierre-Paul now has his own tribute video and one has to wonder why it took so long.

The video— sung by a Giants fan and dozens of background lip-synchers— combines Naughty by Nature's 1991 hit single "O.P.P." with the defensive end's nickname— "J.P.P."

The singer, Josh Hyman, titled his fun, home-made video song, "You Down with J.P.P."  and the end result of the two songs go together like chocolate and peanut butter.

He even got an email from the Giants sack artist himself who said, "Hey, I dig it," according to Hyman.


Hyman remixed the original into an homage to the Giants and his favorite player before the team meets the San Francisco 49ers in Sunday's NFC Championship game and is a big hit on YouTube.

The new version of the song opens with the lyrics "Blue army with harmony" and contains such lines as "Are you down with Big Blue D" to go with the chorus, "You Down with J.P.P.."

The Jackson Five sample is still in there too.

Mixed in with the homemade shots of Giants fans and cheerleaders are clips of J.P.P. sacking opponents and doing a celebration flip.

There is still a lot of debate surrounding what the original O.P.P. even stands for.   Other People's Property or Other People's Privates are the consensus but, in this version, J.P.P. stands clearly for one thing— Jason Pierre-Paul and his sacks.
