Andy Roddick Video: Watch A-Rod Rap in a Santa Hat and Awful X-Mas Sweater

It took until late December, but a new candidate for worst celebrity rap video of the year has emerged. American tennis star Andy Roddick got on stage with Bobby Bones to perform the “Humpty Dance” and let's just say that it's a good thing he can serve 130mph.

The video of Roddick's performance is embedded above.

After he gets introduced, two things immediately jump out at you.

First, he's wearing one of the ugliest Christmas sweaters of all time—and that's saying something.

Secondly, why is he carrying a drink in his hand? Seems like he should have left that backstage or at least used it as a prop to smash on his forehead.

As for the actual singing, it isn't much better. Give him credit for not forgetting the lyrics, but he won't be winning any Grammys for his performance. It's hard to focus on his rhythm when he's pulling some weird dance moves at the same time.

Of course, just when you think it couldn't get any worse, it does.

Perhaps two of the worst backup dancers of all time later emerge to show off their lack of skills. It isn't so much dancing as it is moving their bodies in the most abnormal ways possible. Maybe they'll just blame it on Roddick's bad singing—that's what I would do.

This is probably one of those times where it probably seemed like an awesome idea to Roddick beforehand, but about halfway through he remembered he'll now be on YouTube forever and it suddenly wasn't so awesome anymore.

Even though his rapping ability isn't so hot, he's still married to model Brooklyn Decker. Roddick must be doing something right.
