Mistah F.A.B. shows support for Warriors in ‘Ghostride the Prius’
Oakland rapper Mistah F.A.B., best known for his 2008 hit single "Ghost Ride It," is reveling in the Golden State Warriors’ first Finals berth in 40 years.
Like most Bay Area fans — one of the Warriors’ branding maxims is "Loud and Proud" — F.A.B. is publicly voicing his support for his hometown team the best way he knows how: a music video.
In "Ghostride the Prius," a play off 2006’s "Ghostride the Volvo" viral video, Mistah F.A.B., Nate Houghteling — one of the co-creators of "Ghostride the Volvo" — and a half-dozen backup dancers "ghostride" a Toyota Prius and rep the Dubs near the Port of Oakland.
The video — which copies the original shot-for-shot — features funny dialogue, including:
“When Nate first told me that the Golden State Warriors were in the NBA Finals for the first time in 40 years, I slapped him across the face,” Mistah F.A.B. says.
“It was an honor,” Nate stoically quips.
