Planters Lovingly 'Roasts' Dad in This Father's Day Rap

Anthony Anderson makes with the rhymes

Who mows the grass in a crisscross pattern, and drinks out of cups you can see from Saturn?

Who reads biographies of every single POTUS? Who's revealing bike shorts put the neighborhood on notice?

Who hangs out next to the couch—his favorite spot in the room—and sneezes real loud like a sonic boom?

It's Dad, of course, and Planters salutes Father's Day with Black-ish star Anthony Anderson busting rhymes in this super-silly rap video:

MR. PEANUT x ANTHONY ANDERSON - Shake it like Dad (official music video) #NutsForDad

Don't "shake it" too hard, fellas, you'll throw out your backs!

You can thank/blame VaynerMedia for that musical "shellebration." (Planters likes to drop such puns in press releases. It needs to stop.)

"I've fully embraced my dad-ism of grilling outside in my grill master apron, rain or shine," Anderson says. "This Father's Day, I'm looking forward to celebrating with a cookout surrounded by my family, and you can bet my grill master apron will be on full display!"

The Kraft Heinz brand launched a #NutsForDad contest, too, with 10 prizes of $10,000 awarded for the best videos about Dad's quirks.

Who knows best 'cause he's hella wise, and never sleeps—he's just resting his eyes?

It ain't Mom!
