‘It’s clear that you love me:’ Brooks, Bryson and a Backstreet Boys song

Sam Harrop

Sam Harrop parodies a Backstreet Boys song for the Brooks Koepka-Bryson DeChambeau beef.

The headline read as such: Leaked Brooks Koepka interview recharges Koepka-DeChambeau rivalry.

Consider this, then, Brooks and Bryson Unplugged. 

On Monday, a previously unseen video showing Koepka’s displeasure with DeChambeau during a Golf Channel interview worked its way online. On Thursday, it was put into song. Sam Harrop, who has written numerous other golf-themed parodies (which you should check out here), penned and sung one for the Brooks-Bryson beef. 

To the tune of the Backstreet Boys’ ’90s hit As Long As You Love Me.  

“The people asked, so I did the honourable thing and produced a song to go with golf’s biggest storyline, Brooks vs Bryson,” Harrop tweeted. “They say there’s a thin line between love and hate, right?”

If you weren’t among the millions who viewed the since-taken-down video, a recap: After the second round of last week’s PGA Championship, Koepka began answering a question, when 22 seconds into the 45-second video, DeChambeau walked by. Koepka shut his eyes for a couple of seconds, rolled them, shut them again, then unloaded, the latest addition in their drama.

Which led to Harrop’s one-minute, 45-second song. Its lyrics follow, which include references to the leaked video; Koepka’s red ant jab from the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational last July; DeChambeau’s mention of Koepka’s abs in early January 2020; the Player Impact Program; and the announcement of the latest match, between the teams of DeChambeau and Aaron Rodgers, and Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady:   

Although pettiness has often been a friend of mine 
You’re playing right into my hands 
Just the thought of you has got me rolling my eyes 
Don’t make me mention the ants 

How we ended up here is a mystery 
But one of us is going down in history 
The other belongs in a lab 
I don’t care who you are 
Where you’re from 
Those workout vids 
It’s clear that you love me 
Who you are 
Where you’re from 
Bring on the tweets 
The PIP’s gonna love me

Inside the mystery of the Bryson DeChambeau-Brooks Koepka video


Dylan Dethier

Forget this match with Mickelson 
Let’s play some skins 
Those NFL guys can step aside 
Just remember what’s important 
And that’s major wins 
And you’re lagging three behind 

I don’t care who you are 
Where you’re from 
I saw your fleet 
It’s clear that you love me 
Who you are 
Where you’re from 
You leaked that vid 
Admit it, you love me 

As of Friday afternoon, the tweet of the song had over 200 comments and 5,200 likes. And 1,100 retweets, including one from Koepka.  

“It’s a hit,” he wrote above the video, adding a 100 emoji.
