Wouldn't you know it, but Brian Wilson is "2 Legit 2 Quit" -- but you probably knew that already.

The Giants closer is featured, alongside MC Hammer, NFL legend Ronnie Lott and others in an ad for San Francisco interim mayor Ed Lee's election bid. Yep, the Giants' closer isn't just schilling for chalupas, he's also getting political in his own way.

Lott is appearing in his second video for "2 Legit 2 Quit" video -- back in 1991 he was in the original along with Rickey Henderson, Jose Canseco, Kirby Puckett, Roger Clemens, Deion Sanders, Isiah Thomas, Jerry Rice, Andre Rison, Chris Mullin, Roger Craig, Lynette Woodard, the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders, David Robinson and Jerry Glanville. None of those guys back in the day had the stones to rock the hammer pants, though, like Wilson does. 

Sure, I don't live in San Francsico, but if I did, how could I not vote for Lee with an ad like that? 

And, if like my sister-in-law, you can't get enough of Wilson, there's even the outtakes of his dancing. Hey, it's the offseason.

Not only can I grow one but I don't feel the need to dye it either. Nor would I grow it to the length of a homeless man's beard. He is one of the most attention-hungry athletes out there.

I'm a die hard Dodgers fan, but I love Brian Wilson.  The guy is hilarious and actually has a personality unlike most sports stars these days. Kudos BW!

You should go away. You're probably just jealous because you can't grow a beard
