Ever have the urge to get in the Christmas spirit while also expressing your approval for Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning? Well, friend, your prayers have been answered in the form of Bootsy Collins' latest hit single "Peyton Manning's Passing Your Way."

Collins, who rose to prominence in the funk game via his work with James Brown and Parliament-Funkadelic, put his own spin on "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" in this rendition shot for Sports Illustrated Kids. It caps off quite a week for Manning, who was also named the 2013 Sportsman of the Year. Between that and Bootsy's funky tribute, I'm sure that a Super Bowl title is just an afterthought for Manning at this point. [Sports Illustrated Kids]
