Chicago Blackhawks have done many funny and endearing things video spots similar to what they did back in 2011 when they wore Ugly Christmas Sweaters and sang without knowing how to sing. These videos are the topic of some flashback reports.
Last week, everyone enjoyed the journalistic styling of young Joey the Junior Reporter. This adorable kid was indeed funny with his interactions with current and now-former Blackhawks. This week’s video is also good for some laughs but it not exactly something you will call adorable.
The Blackhawks are fond of doing some cheesy content for timeout and intermission breaks at the United Center; however, other NHL teams also want to keep up with the holidays. Many teams like to do some kind of holiday segment and the Blackhawks were no different in 2011 with their sing-along holiday album.
The video basically looks like a commercial for a fake holiday album featuring songs that were altered so as to fit the player’s name in them. As you watch the video, you will notice that some of the players appeared interested while some don’t but all of them did not know how to sing.
Dave Bolland leads with some kind of confusing rendition of Frosty the Snowman/Dave Bolland Crossover. Bolland seemed like he has fallen out of a winter-themed version of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
Patrick Sharp follows it up with some nice snapping to let children that he and not Santa Claus is coming to town. The next performer is Bryan Bickell who looks interested on this video idea. He does this awesome little jive while messing with his suspender straps to the tune of Jingle Bells.
After some filler and promotions from the voiceover guy, Keith and Brent Seabrook start with their songs. Nobody has an idea on Keith’s song but Seabrook started singing I Saw Three Ships with some very interesting lyrical changes while wearing a Santa hat.
Marian Hossa is probably the worst singer of the team. Nick Leddy takes over with his Dreidel Song while John Scott follows up with a dancing shtick. Michael Frolik was given Feliz Navidad along with the most awesome of all Ugly Christmas Sweaters. Patrick Kane follows up with his rendition of Auld Lang Syne and Niklas Hjalmarsson does some fantastic dorky singing and dancing.
