    So that’s what happens when you hit the Cray button

  2. Iaya97 says:

    Cool video, song is kind of obnoxious, it’s interesting to see Lecrae do something this stupid.

    • Ryan Campbell says:

      exactly my thoughts… it’s rare that this happens with Lecrae, but I mean at least he doesn’t seem to take it too seriously

    • Iaya97 says:

      I do like how he has a bit of a thesis statement of why he and FF5 are doing the song – “Everybody is serious looking for deep material, chill and turn up the stereo and dance like me.” I just hope that this is a one-off way of looking at music for him. I think FF5 have their place as Christian party music, though they are definitely capable of more and better things.

  3. Lecrae’s verse is bomb.

  4. iamjustin says:

    if you hit the cray button with a hammer lecrae pops out and raps?

  5. Lucas says:

    I think cheese toast should pop out when you hit the cray button. And I promise I’m not trying to make another “cheese” joke about FF5, I just really like cheese toast.

  6. jthejust says:

    LOL at all those American flags at the beginning and end.

  7. drum_mer says:

    Crae (Not cray) was the best part about this obviously.

  8. Len says:

    It was well done, fun.

  9. MrM says:

    *Adjusts bow tie*

  10. Chris says:

    If I push the “cray” button, will that make it stop?
