This morning I had the pleasure of hanging around in studio with Satiar Shaw and Jawn Jang – hosts of The Playbook on Sportsnet 650.
They invited me in to speak about the Canucks and our latest Canucks Christmas Carols music video.
They also got me to judge Jawn’s new song.
Have a listen here…my interview starts at the 34 minute mark.
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.
We had a great time working with the Vancouver Canucks on this project. Canucks rookies Ben Hutton and Jake Virtanen join us for this video – they were so awesome to work with and had a lot of fun shooting with us.
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”.

In the span of one week, the Vancouver Canucks traded away three popular players: defenceman Kevin Bieksa, goalie Eddie Lack, and forward Zack Kassian. In fact, we had this song written for just Bieksa and Lack when we found out that Kassian had been traded…while we were preparing to shoot this video. Thus, we were able to add him albeit at the last minute.
To pay tribute to these three players, we went with a Boyz II Men classic: It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday. This is actually the third Boyz II Men song we’ve covered for the Canucks.
I’m joined by regular collaborators Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao. As well, we welcome newlyweds Joseph and Marion San Jose, fresh off of their honeymoon to Rome where they gave a Canucks jersey to Pope Francis (with his name on it). You may have heard about it.
The Vancouver Canucks are back in the NHL playoffs and thus we are thrilled to present our Canucks Playoff Anthem: Something Big. It’s based on the original song by Shawn Mendes.
I’m joined by my regular collaboration partners: the wonderful and talented Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao. They never cease to amaze me with their skills…in this video check out how they harmonize effortlessly while doing syncopated clapping…it’s NUTS!
We’re excited about a deep playoff run for the Canucks. Something big is happening! Go Canucks Go!
