J.J. Watt croons about hot dogs on "New Girl"

Frank Sinatra he isn't. Nor would we even compare him to Michael Bolton. But we will admit Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt can definitely croon about hot dogs.

The multi-hyphenated All-Pro can now add that he's a tackling thespian and a singing sacker to his resume. Watt guest starred on Fox's hit show "New Girl" Tuesday night.

As you'll see in the clip above, Watt joined the show's stars Zooey Deschanel and Damon Wayans Jr. in a whimsical scene in a garage that suddenly breaks into an a capella serenade about hot dogs led by the dulcet Texan.

"I've been a fan of the show for quite some time," Watt said in behind-the-scenes interview. "It's a pretty exciting experience."

We're sure Watt will be hosting the Oscars next.

Amar Shah is the Digital Features Editor at He's also the writer and producer of "Sati Shaves Her Head" which ironically stars "New Girl" star Hannah Simone. So that means he's now bffs with J.J. Watt by default.  You can reach him at @amarshahism.
