Forget Lions, here's the Simon Zebo rapping video the world is raving about

The Irish winger has formed a super rap group with teammate Paddy ‘JCB’ Jackson.

SIMON ZEBO’S NAME lit up every form of social media today (even Bebo) and it was not because of his scintillating performance against the Waratahs for the British and Irish Lions.

The Irish winger has become an internet sensation for the second time in six months – the first was his flick against Wales in the Six Nations – for a stunning rap duet with his main Ulster home boy Paddy Jackson.

The video – their version of the Kanye West tune Otis – was recorded while Ireland were in Houston, Texas on their summer tour. Check it out:

It was filmed on 7 June, uploaded to YouTube last Sunday, Jackson posted it on 10 June but it came our way via the chaps over at Too good to stay hidden for long.
