BOSTON (CBS) –  Kevin Youkilis may be on the disabled list, but the Red Sox third baseman can still hit it out of the park.

With a little help from a hip hop star.

Youkilis recently made a commercial with car dealer Herb Chambers, where he and Chambers sing Biz Markie’s “You Got What I Need.” It is part of Herb Chamber’s “We Got What You Need” campaign.

While Youk won’t be winning a Grammy for his performance, you have to applaud his acting.

With Youkilis and Chambers unable to hit some of the high notes, Markie steps in to give them a hand.

“As you can tell, we had great fun shooting this commercial,” said Herb Chambers in a release. “We’ve had a tremendous relationship with Kevin and we’re proud to be his car dealer. Adding Biz Markie to the mix will surely make this spot a memorable one for our customers.”

Youkilis has Markie’s 1989 hit play when he steps to the plate at Fenway.
