Two of the NFL's biggest names, and siblings, have released a new "music video" and it is sweeping the internet. Honestly, it's not hard to see why.  What you'll see, is unbelievable.

First - Peyton Manning has hair.  Second - he and little brother, Eli, are rapping. The rest is just magical.

The video was put out by DIRECTV to advertise their new "NFL Sunday" package, which allows live streaming of football games this season on your computer, mobile phone or tablets.

"Football on your phone?" Peyton asks. "Football... on your phone," Eli says.

And then the Mannings break into a two-plus minute rap about getting football on your phone, dressed like a bad 90's boy band.

"It's football on your phone, so now is your chance to have football on your phone and football in your pants," the brothers rap at one point. "Look at this guy - using his phone as a phone! You're phone ain't for calling, your phone is for footballin'!"

Archie Manning, Peyton and Eli's dad, makes a cameo in the video, sitting on a gold throne dressed like a bad Elvis impersonator.

The video ends with the hashtag #FootballOnYourPhone, if you'd like to join the conversation about the video on Twitter.

DIRECTV posted the video on YouTube on Tuesday and by Wednesday morning, the video had been viewed more than two million times.
