Meet the newest rap stars on the planet: Peyton and Eli Manning.

The NFL brothers star in a commercial for a new DirecTV feature that lets users watch football games on their smartphones ... when you’re sittin' on your throne, when you’re buttering a scone.

They’re hysterical in an Andy Samberg-like video called “Football on Your Phone.” (Our head hurts just thinking about a “Saturday Night Live” parody of this parody.)

Check out Peyton’s Flock of Seagulls hair.

And Eli looks like Justin Timberlake, the middle-school years.

Our favorite part? Papa Manning, Archie, making a cameo in a bad wig.

Alexander Graham Bell shows up, too.

If you watch it – as more than 2 million people already have – you’ll be singing it all day.

“There’s football on your phone, so now is your chance

“To have football on your phone and football in your pants.”
