VIDEO: Thunder rap from brother-sister duo is hilarious

Ladies and gentlemen, here’s your official Thunder playoff anthem.

Kabir Iyengar and his sister, Karnika Iyengar, have teamed up for this rap parody entitled “Rollin’ (OKC) Thunder,” laced with hilarious references to Reggie Jackson as Scrappy Doo, mistaken identity between the Thunder’s backup big men and more. Not to mention a chorus that’ll likely be stuck in your head all day.

The best comes around the 1:21 mark, where Kabir breaks into how confused he gets Nick Collison and Steven Adams on the court.

Our squad is so money, you should call us Richy Rich/Got Collison and Adams but I don’t know which is which.

(Like, for real, I don’t know which is which. I can’t tell them apart. I’m surprised other teams don’t, like, accidentally double team one of them.)

The Tulsa natives (and Booker T. Washington alumni) currently live in Chicago, but have been Thunder fans since the team moved to Oklahoma City

"I work in finance, but I've been making comedic videos for fun for a couple of year," Kabir said Tuesday via email. "My sister wanted to get involved so we decided to put this together."

Funny stuff (with subtitles). Here are the lyrics:

Rollin’ (OKC) Thunder

[Chorus]
We rollin' Thunder, rollin', rollin', Thunder up
We rollin' Thunder, rollin', rollin', Thunder up
We rollin' Thunder, Thunder, Thunder, rollin' up
We rollin' Thunder, rollin', rollin', Thunder up

[Verse]

Rollin' Thunder, and we're gonna get a ring
Ya'll are rain drops, falling in the spring
Rollin' Thunder, yeah we going till the summer
Playing 'till June, cuz D- Fish want another

Kevin Durant our M-V-P
LeBron looking at him like "that used to be me"
Got a great coach, talking about Scotty Brooks
He's so damn smart, we should call him Scotty books, OH

Reggie Jack is scrappy, and he'll get you with his jumper
Scooby doo-ing you, your crew, all your dogs are scared of thunder
Cuz Butler got your number, and he's calling long distance
And you just blowing smoke, like a strong stick of incense
So you just try and take a shot
And Serge will "Serge Iblockya"

Russell so much swag, swaggin' on and off the court
And Perkins really tall, but his temper's really short
Our whole squad is money, you should call us Richy Rich
Got Collison and Adams, but I don't know which is which

Like for real, I don't know which is which. I can't tell em apart. I'm surprised other teams like don't accidentally double team one of em. Like I thought you got collison, boy this is collison, what? Adams?

[Chorus]
We rollin' Thunder, rollin', rollin', Thunder up
We rollin' Thunder, rollin', rollin', Thunder up
We rollin' Thunder, Thunder, Thunder, rollin' up
We rollin' Thunder, rollin', rollin', Thunder up
