Back in late August, the Oakland Athletics invited actor Terry Kiser best known for his role as Bernie Lomax in the classic 1980’s comedy movie franchise, “Weekend at Bernie’s” to throw out the first pitch as the A’s faced the Boston Red Sox.

Kiser was invited because of a trend started by Oakland Athletics players doing a dance move better known as “The Bernie ” to celebrate big plays. The “Bernie” movement started when pitcher Jerry Blevins started playing in the clubhouse a 2010 rap song called, “Moving Like Berney” written by a rapper called ISA.

However, another popular Bernie song called “The Bernie Lean” written by rappers ATM and IMD became Oakland’s calling card and last week, the below music video was produced featuring the rap duo along with Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp doing that “Bernie Lean”:
