Readers Seth & Jen watched that wonderful Notre Dame promo and thought they recognized those Midwestern-sports-funk stylings from the video you see here, a celebration of Reds fandom.

Here are the emails Seth & Jen sent:

This is a dude who calls himself Freekbass. He's from Cincinnati and is kind of a big deal locally here. He's produced by the legendary Bootsy Collins. The DJ in the video is DJ Logic, we think.

The video wasn't nearly as embarrassing as the stuff Bootsy Collins did for the Bengals.

IMHO, both the Notre Dame and the Reds stuff is a bit hokie and uninspired

Watch the way you use the word "hokie."

At least Bootsy had some street cred.

I've always thought it was cool that Cincinnati had someone with Bootsy Collin's stature who felt such a strong attachment to the local teams, but his Bengals song was just weird. I actually like the Freekbass song as something you can play at the park or as a pump up song at a tailgate before the game.

Wow. How'd they get Vanilla Ice to do a Reds song?

On a lighter note, the cheerleaders look good.
