Antonio Rüdiger can’t stop singing ‘Mans Not Hot’

The ting goes skrrra pap pap

How do you do, fellow kids?

This is the part where I’m going to pretend I know what I’m talking about.

So there’s a song by Big Shaq (a.k.a. the comedian Michael Dapaah not the basketball player) called ‘Mans Not Hot’ — it’s unclear to me whether this is serious or just a parody (it's hard to tell these days), though I’m not sure that matters much in the end — which started out as a funny freestyle but then became a chart-topping hit and an official video with 66m+ views on YouTube.

One man who undoubtedly accounts for several of those 66m+ views is Chelsea center back Antonio Rüdiger, who’s apparently a big fan.

Here he is performing the famous (famous?) ‘the ting goes skrrra pap pap’ line on the airplane.


And here he is singing it on the training ground.

And here he is trying to get Cesc Fàbregas to sing along.

When you’re not hot, you’re not hot, I guess.

Here’s the original video, for reference.
