Christmas is still 19 days away and already it seems that Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is destined to become the most homoerotically lip-synched video of the holiday season. But unlike the ultra-cheery leotard couple who made the last video, the navy guys in this one actually have a heart-rending story to accompany their horn-inducing video.
Jezebel’s Whitney Jefferson explains:
Royal Navy’s HMS Ocean deployed earlier this year, they expected to be out to sea for seven weeks. But their boat was diverted to Libya and at this point, the ship has been away for for seven months. During this time, graduations and birthdays were missed, fifteen men became fathers and five had to leave the boat to get married. But recently came good news — the crew would be home for Christmas!
Even Mariah Carey gave her thumbs up to the video. Now if the next video can just combine leotarded choreography and military hotties, that’ll be quite the stocking stuffer.
