Video of the Week: Hockey Team Spoofs Mariah Carey

, Posted on Dec 17

We’re definitely feeling the holiday spirit here at the Identity home front, and we wanted to pass that along with our last Video of the Week feature in 2010.

Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas” is one of the most popular Christmas tunes (and my all-time favorite!). I came across a video of the Belfast Giants hockey team performing the song, and it’s a riot (hat tip to Ragan Communications for including the video in one of its e-newsletters this week).

Some of my favorite features of this video are the choreography, attire (especially the elf costume) and the hockey players’ dramatic expressions and hand movements. I would love to see the bloopers and behind-the-scenes moments from the actual filming!

I think this was a really creative way for the hockey team to promote its Christmas games. Cheers to the team for having a sense of humor.

And with that, we’ve wrapped up our Video of the Week posts for the year! We’ll be back the first week in January with more fun and silly videos that give you an excuse to take a break and laugh after a long, busy week.
