First, back in February, Fergie performed what can only be described as a bizarre rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" before the NBA All-Star Game. Remember this?

During the performance, Golden State Warriors player Draymond Green is seen giving a little chuckle. Other players laugh as well, but Fergie's ex-husband. actor Josh Duhamel took exception particularly to Green's laugh. He told FS1's Fair Game earlier this week:
"I was pissed off at Draymond Green first of all. I think her owed her apology. I think he was kind of a prick. Just because he knew the camera was on him and he snickered about it. If he would have been a real man, he would have at least called her and said, 'Listen, I'm sorry that I caused all this.'"

To be fair, he was just having his ex's back but at the time, even Fergie apologized for the rendition saying:
"I've always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA. I'm a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn't strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly tried my best."
Now, a music producer and DJ, Keenan Webb, AKA DJ Suede the Remix God.has put together a new mix of the famously botched anthem that has everyone from Snoop Dog to The Creighton Women's Basket Team are getting down to the new funky beat. As an added jab to Duhamel, the Warriors danced a little jig in their locker room.
The challenge is on!
