OKLAHOMA CITY -

The creators of the viral video sensation "Beard Like Harden"  are at it again.

Now the group is busy working on a music video for Kevin Durant. This time, it's a parody of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe". It's a catchy tune that will, no doubt, hit YouTube soon with new lyrics and the title of Call Him K.D.

Call Me Maybe, the number two spot on the Billboard charts, is joining a momentum of Thunder Pride in Oklahoma.

Friday was only the music group's first rehearsal for the new video. The men from Woodward hope to have Call Him K.D. ready to upload by game one of the NBA Finals.

Their Maroon 5 parody, Beard Like Harden, already has more than 200,000 hits on YouTube.

"I kind of jumped into video and animation a few years ago, and I've really enjoyed it and loved it," lead singer Chris Castor said.

Castor says the idea was to create a music video for each of the Thunder's series. His brother got the ball rolling on Beard Like Harden, but now the attention turns to the team leader.

"We just enjoy doing this," Castor said. "It's a lot of fun for me to get to hang out with my family and my friends and support something we love together."

With the help of college buddies, all of the instruments, photography and post production is covered.

On Tuesday, the complete music video will be on the group's YouTube page.
