MLS and FIFA15 had a little get together on Thursday night in New York, one that looked like a typical promotional event. New brand for the league and a new product from Electronic Arts put synergy on the menu. It was all about two brands being brand buddies.

That is, it was all about the brands until the U.S. Men’s National Team captain took the stage for a few bars.

You know: Just Clint Dempsey things.

Taking a quick detour after winning U.S. Open Cup Tuesday in Philadelphia, the Sounders’ star emerged from backstage with mic in hand to show off his second most-renown talent, one made famous by “Don’t Tread.” The former Fulham star also released the single “It’s Poppin’” earlier this year off his album “The Redux.”

On Thursday, Dempsey appearance was brief, but although the emcee dropped some peavy hints before he took the stage, “Deuce” still drew a reaction from the crowd when he took his turn.
