I’m still sitting her astonished, man.

LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, the nephew of The Beach Boys and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the greatest regular season basketball team of all time three times in a row to come back from down three games to one to win the 2016 NBA Championship. And more importantly, J.R. Smith is an NBA Champion. Yesterday truly was the greatest day.

Aside from Game 7, Verizon caught a tiny win, too, as they released their new TV spot. Calling on the help of Future’s father, Past — played by one of the greatest modern-day entertainers, Sir Jamie Foxx — he offered his own version of his son’s “Fuck Up Some Commas.”

“I got Verizon, I got Verizon/See me on the street/Walk up to me with AT&T, we fighting,” the old man raps. And the best part of the whole thing? The song — in true hip-hop form — throws shade at the “Can You Hear Me Now Guy,” who was the spokesperson for Verizon for nearly a decade. The beef never stops. Not even in the phone conglomerate world.

Watch the spot below.
