    Looking to provide a postseason anthem for the Atlanta Braves and their fans, self-described “freelance creative” Aaron Chewning created a parody of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” song and video that he’s dubbed “Baselines.”

    The video features young ladies in Braves attire, a Braves mascot and lyrics celebrating the Braves’ season, NL East crown and the inevitable 2013 World Series victory.

    It also features homages to many of the Braves players and coaches, including the Upton brothers, manager Fredi Gonzalez and closer Craig Kimbrell.

    The chorus, for example, goes as follows:

    “We got the Uptons,
    We got the Johnsons,
    We’re pretty awesome.
    The whole world!
    They aint ready,
    We got the Freddies,
    We’ve won already,
    All these baselines!”

    BASELINES LYRICS

    INTRO:
    Turner Field get up!
    Hey, hey, hey!
    Hey, hey, hey!
    Hey, hey, hey!

    V1:
    If you didn’t see, Atlanta run the league (ATL c’mon!),
    If you didn’t read, SI magazine,
    We rocked the NL East,
    Sweeping left and right,
    One month in and outta sight,

    PC:
    Ok it’s business time,
    And we’re so underrated,
    But in due time,
    They’re gonna celebrate us,
    Say hi to all the haters,
    Hey hey hey!
    Cause they know what our fate is,
    Hey hey hey!
    And that’s October greatness.

    C:
    And we’re the best team in the whole world!
    We got the Uptons,
    We got the Johnsons,
    We’re pretty awesome.
    The whole world!
    They aint ready,
    We got the Freddies,
    We’ve won already,
    All these baselines!
    I got a feeling,
    This post season,
    We gon be winning,
    It’s about time!
    We punched our ticket,
    To get that pennant,
    We’re gonna win it.

    V2:
    Think you’re winning you are mental,
    9th innings are so simple,
    When you release the Kimbrell,
    HE’S GOT THE FASTEST PITCH IN THIS PLACE!
    You watch out Uggla,
    Hey hey hey!
    Cause Freddie loves ya,
    Hey hey hey!
    He’s gonna hug ya,
    Hey hey hey!

    PC2:
    OK, the East is won,
    But we’re not finished just yet,
    Looks like we got the runs,
    Not even breaking a sweat,
    Marlin’s you weren’t a threat,
    Hey hey hey!
    Philly don’t you forget,
    Hey hey hey!
    Swatted some Nats and Mets,

    C2:
    And we’re the best team in the whole world!
    We got the Uptons,
    And the Johnsons,
    We’re pretty awesome.
    The whole world!
    They aint ready,
    We got the Freddies,
    We’ve won already,
    All those baselines!
    I got a feeling,
    This post season,
    We gon be winning,
    It’s about time!
    We punched our ticket,
    To get that pennant,
    We’re gonna win it.

    V3:
    One thing I ask of you,
    I don’t wanna hear you mention that nattitude,
    Miami to NYC, and Philly dude,
    And even DC got their team run through,
    So lemme tell you what them braves’ll do,
    It’s the 95 playoffs, dejavu,
    Uh other teams go and form a queue,
    And the commisioner’s trophy, we’re coming for you!
