Phil Knight Cheerleader Birthday is Kind of …

So the UO cheerleaders went to Nike and gave Phil Knight a birthday cheer. 

Mr.Knight we're here to cheer you, on your very special day.

We appreciate your kindness, there's no way we can repay.

One request from all of us students, can you put us in your will?

So a great big Happy Birthday, to our favorite Uncle Phil!

 

Maybe I'm creeped out because it's a bit like the UO gave "Uncle Phil" a bunch of young women for his birthday? 

Watch the whole video below.

According to Comcast SportsNet:

Members of the UO cheer team were invited to Nike campus in Portland, Oregon to perform for a Nike sales meeting the morning of Mr. Knights [sic] Birthday.

The cheerleaders performance was accompanied with variety of lead entertainers in industry such as dancers, circus performers, and choreographers. The performance ended in a spectacular show ending atmosphere with balloons falling from the ceiling, streamers strung across the stage, and beach balls tossed into the crowd.
