Obadiah Gamble is turning seven on Sunday. 


He is a huge fan of the Minnesota Vikings, especially their young quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater. This presents a problem.

Obadiah wants his favorite player at his birthday party. But Bridgewater is a busy man. This week saw the beginning of preseason organized team activities (OTAs), and the 23-year-old has plenty of preparation to do before starting his third season in the NFL.

Obadiah knew how to get Bridgewater's attention: with an almost impossibly cute rap video called "Hey Teddy." 

As the chorus asks: "Hey Tedd-ay, Hey Tedd-ay/Won't you wanna come to my birthday?"

This 1:40 rap video is getting the kind of play a lot of local adult acts would kill for, with 7,000-plus views as of this moment. 

The Vikings and Bridgewater have taken notice, and are sending Gamble some gear signed by the quarterback, according to Fox Sports. Gamble and his mom, Vanessa, aren't sure if Bridgewater's actually going get to the party, but Obadiah says it's okay if the Vikings star doesn't make it. He'll just invite him again next year.

"[Obadiah] is an amazing kid and he's got an amazing charisma," Vanessa Gamble tells Fox.

See for yourself, and then see if you don't wind up humming "Hey Tedd-ay" the rest of the afternoon.
