Merry Christmas, Cloverdale.
Here is a musical Christmas postcard from students at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary to the people of Cloverdale.
The clip, posted to YouTube this week, was created by student council co-president John Wu, and stars Wu along with a handful of his fellow students.
They’re lip-synching a heartfelt version of the romantic holiday classic made famous by Mariah Carey, All I want for Christmas is You, emoting like seasoned pop stars.
Wu said the video was shot during a spare, and is being shown on the school’s TV channel Friday as a special episode.
“I just thought I’d share it with you,” he told the Reporter, “and perhaps you want to show it to the community on your website, too!”
Wu says he just walked around school with a camera, asking people who were enthusiastic if they wanted to be a part of it.
Students Royce Rossignol, Will Nomura, Brendan Woods, Rami Jizi, Harsimran Gill, Manrah Gill, Brett Norris, Craig Benzce, Sam Hobyn, Ben Ingvaldson, Caleb Abraham, and Wu all took part.
So here it is, Cloverdale, and be sure to turn up the volume, because you’re probably going to want to sing along.
One viewing note: there is a brief image of twerking (sorry, world), but the video is definitely SFW.
