As if we needed help getting hyped for Thanksgiving, the viral #UNameIt challenge has certainly made sure everybody will be hungry for their beans, greens, potatoes and tomatoes in time for November 24.
The viral sensation arose after Instagram user RemixGodSuede remixed gospel legend Shirley Caesar and turned her sermon into one of the catchiest hooks of 2016.
The footage took off like crazy, with social media users all over Twitter and Instagram remixing the beat with audio and video footage. Our favorite so far has got to be the full Thanksgiving-themed verse that Ace Hood wrote and recorded for the beat, which you can watch in full below.
It contains such gems as “I’m on my way to my grandmother’s house, I know that you know what the hype is about … Get it together, grandaddy prayin’ he takin’ forever. You know that uncle who show up the latest, he make a few plates that he savin’ for later.”
Others have spliced the track with footage of Beyoncé’s live performances, or famous dance scenes.

Here’s the original video which, surprisingly, doesn’t seem to have anything to do with Thanksgiving at all. All we know is that we didn’t expect Shirley Caesar to drop the hottest hook we’ve heard in a while.
I finally found the original video. ???????? pic.twitter.com/vXSE3WBfJc
