Your day is about to get better: the Washington Capitals released their holiday video and it’s a doozy. Featuring Alex Ovechkin wearing a pink bunny costume, Michael Latta getting his tongue stuck to a pole, Rod Langway as Santa, and Alex Ovechkin in a pink bunny costume, this video is an instant classic.
The video is an homage to 1983’s A Christmas Story. We’ve got Ralphie’s pink bunny suit, Ralphie’s dad’s “major award” fishnet leg lamp, a grumpy Santa and more. Last season’s video, a cheerful music & dance number, was great, but this is even better.
We have Nate Schmidt as Ralphie, making for some of the greatest facial expressions ever.
Braden Holtby as “Old Man Parker” with his Major Award
Caps alumni Rod Langway as Santa (with Andre Burakovsky as another Ralphie)
And Caps Roomie Michael Latta being “Triple Dog Dared” into licking a frozen pole by Karl Alzner and Ralphie III Tom Wilson.
But the main takeaway of the video had to be Alex Ovechkin wearing Raplie’s “deranged Easter Bunny” pajamas.
Happy Holidays, Caps! And be careful with any new sticks & pucks you get for Christmas, or else you’ll shoot your eye out.
