Oh, it has been topped alright. The Chicago Blackhawks have taken the title belt as far as I'm concerned.
Rewriting Christmas songs to fit player names and/or teams is nothing new. But for me the Blackhawks took it to a new level with this video. Enjoy. It will be tough even for the Red Wings and Canucks fans not to.
It's funny from the start, but about midway through the video the appetizer of Marian Hossa (Silent Night), Nick Leddy (Dreidel, Dreidel) and John Scott (Grandma Got Runover by a Reindeer) leads to the entre that had me rolling. Really. That's when they went South of the Border to Michael Frolik for a little Frolik Navidad.
The appearance of the players singing themselves is half the reason why it's so funny to begin with. They found one excellently awful collection of Christmas sweaters and accessories.
My desert comes near the end when they are running through all the other song titles available on this mythical CD -- that should be real, mind you -- and there were a few more gems including Deck Jamal (Deck the Halls) and another knee-slapper Lepisto, Lepisto, Lepisto (Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow).
May this trend continue in future years. It's probably too late to see any more this year, but the gauntlet has been laid down for the best holiday video. This is the standard bearer.
