Although the Vancouver Canucks slipped to fifth in last Saturday’s lottery for the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, they are still confident that they will pick a “foundational player”.
In our new parody song, we look ahead to next month’s draft and at some of the players the Canucks will likely considering picking. As well, we pay tribute to the legendary Prince – who passed away on April 21, 2016.
I’m joined by regular collaborators – the lovely and talented Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao for our version of “When Doves Cry”.
As the Canucks’ playoff hopes slip away, I turned to my keyboard for comfort and came up with a brand new parody song.
While I’ve never been part of “Team Tank”, I do indeed realize that the worse the Canucks do in the standings, the greater chance of winning the draft lottery and picking Auston Matthews at number one.
So here’s a song that inspires hope for the future – a future that would be a lot brighter with the best player in the available in this June’s NHL Draft, Auston Matthews.

Here is our Canucks Christmas song – it’s a parody of Run DMC’s “Christmas in Hollis” book-ended by “My Favourite Things” from The Sound of Music.

Once again, I’m joined by the lovely and talented Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao. As well, thanks to my brother Jason Imoo for producing the song.
Merry Christmas to all of you Canucks fans! I’ll be writing a blog about some of the “behind the scenes” stories from our shooting day soon.

The Vancouver Canucks turned over about one-third of their roster to start off the 2015-2016 NHL season.
Brandon Sutter, Brandon Prust, Matt Bartkowski, Adam Cracknell, and rookies Jared McCann, Ben Hutton, and Jake Virtanen all made the team.
So, of course, we decided to sing about it.
I’m joined by regular collaborators – the lovely and talented Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao for our version of Maroon 5’s popular song “Sugar”.
