If you thought there were enough sports holiday videos, too bad. The Chicago Blackhawks holiday video includes stars such as Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, and Duncan Keith, and even gives lesser known players including Marcus Kruger and Mike Kostka their time in the limelight.
The 2:53 video is a compilation of movies the Chicago Blackhawks feel you should enjoy starring the players “reprising” roles from famous movies. Some of the better ones include Kostka as Thor, which he pulled off near flawlessly for Halloween this year. Another performance that is good for a laugh is Duncan Keith in ‘Braveheart.’ If you remember, Keith randomly broke into Mel Gibson’s freedom speech after festivities ended celebrating the 2013 Stanley Cup.
The acting is what you expect it to be: horrendous. No one player exactly has acting chops. Defenseman Nick Leddy is somewhat believable as Napoleon Dynamite, but that is about it.
Enjoy the video, and feel free to share your thoughts about your favorite portion.
