Mike Tyson Sings Song About LeBron James On Jimmy Kimmel Live (Video)
Are you ready for four words you probably never thought you’d see together in one sentence?
Well, here you go: Mike Tyson, comic genius.
Seriously, back when Iron Mike was just famous for punching the crap out of people—Michael Spinks, Glass Joe, his various wives and girlfriends—you probably never imagined seeing him performing parodies of himself in movies and TV sketches. But in 2009, Tyson made a now-legendary cameo in The Hangover, and it was hilarious. Since then, the dude has apparently been taking acting lessons to hone his craft, and on Tuesday night he stopped by the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live to show off his new skill set.
So, are you ready to watch Mike Tyson sing a song about LeBron James?
Good. Here you go:
I think what we have here is a new internet classic. I mean, just listen to the lyrics:
Lebron James is great
He makes Cleveland irate
He was born in Ohio,
and that’s where Cleveland is
Ooooooo you seeeee,
Of course, I think it’s safe to assume that Mike Tyson didn’t write this bit himself (after all those years in the ring, it’s unlikely he has enough fully functional brain cells left to compose much of anything these days), but he did perform it ably, and for that he deserves a lot of credit.
