Reds pitcher and Mike Francesa-favorite Bronson Arroyo is well known for his off-the-field career as a musician. He released his debut album in 2005, Covering The Bases, and has consistently proved he's pretty capable with the guitar.

He also apparently has a great sense of humor.

Arroyo's most recent project is a cover of Adam Sandler's parody song "Red Hooded Sweatshirt." Arroyo's version is cleverly titled "Reds Hooded Sweatshirt."

But Arroyo's Sandler impression is only the second best thing about the clip. Aroldis Chapman steals the show while "singing" the "dip, dip, dip" and "shaba-laba-ding-dong" portions of the song.
