You can’t be good at everything, right? OK, so some people come darn close, and hey, we’ll give it to you that NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon is good at a lot of stuff. But while he looks a lot like Brad Paisley, he should probably leave the singing to Brad.
Don’t believe us?
Jeff and NFL star-turned-morning show host Michael Strahan just took part in Apple Music’s version of “Carpool Karaoke.” And while their mutual zaniness had us doubled over with laughter, their singing … oh, what’s the polite thing to say? Um, don’t quit your day job?
Singing songs like Bill Withers’ “Lovely Day” and Olivia Newton-John’s “Let’s Get Physical” (wait, what?), this pair of athletes flexed their vocal muscles and when we aren’t laughing, well, we’re cringing a bit.
Then again, what they lack in vocal ability they make up for in presentation. And there’s something to be said for that.
Of course, to our knowledge, neither of these superstars in their individual arenas has expressed any interest in a recording career (whew!), but they sure know how to make great video, so television was a great option for both gentlemen.
Comedy could have been a close second, though.
Fortunately, they end their appearance doing what they do best — putting their athletic prowess on display in a race. A rickshaw race!
Seriously, we love these guys and would love to see them partner up again. Perhaps co-hosting the Espys?
