The Elite Ice Hockey League team, the Belfast Giants, have made a music video for Christmas of Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas”.
The video which show the team busting some serious moves while lip-syncing along to the Christmas hit has already generated almost 30,000 viewers.
It seems that the video went viral after it was mentioned on Twitter by Mariah Carey. She tweeted “The Belfast Giants show off some festive moves in their video version of All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
Manager of the Giants, Todd Kelman, said he came up with this idea as a way to promote upcoming games.
He said “It had been a slow week for us with just one game so I thought it would be a bit of fun for us to get together and make this video of the guys lip-syncing to Mariah Carey…We got Debbie Maguire, our cheerleaders’ coach, to choreograph the routine and then the guys who do our videos shot it.
“Some of the Giants had never danced before and I think Debbie was a bit shocked at how uncoordinated they were. But after a few hours practice they looked pretty convincing.”
Todd believes he’s spotted a couple of stars in the team. He said “Craig Peacock is pretty good in it…But I’d have to single out Mike Hoffman in his elf costume. It’s not every day you get to see a 6ft 5in man dressed as a Christmas elf.”
