The Video That Will Change Your Life

Every once in a while a music video comes along that shocks the world. Michael Jackson's "Thriller" comes to mind. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana is also an option, if you are a lumberjack or grew up in the early 1990s.

There are those videos that change the face of music and pop culture as we know it, sometimes turning them completely on their head. I'm talking about the once in a lifetime masterpieces that reverberate with many future generations.

Today, we have another name to put along side the greats of grunge and sleeping with little kids on your ranch pop music. In creating a piece for CBC's competition to replace the Hockey Night in Canada theme song, Logan Aube created an unbelievable work of... well... something. I'm not quite sure what. But if you're a fan of Don Hertzfeld (and I know about three of you are), you'll be with me on this one. It's one of those videos that you watch, go "wtf did I just watch 'cause my eyes are bleeding?" and then fall in love with.

Without further ado, ladies and gentleman, I present to you the current leader in the clubhouse to replace the HNIC theme song. From north of the border, this is "Hockey Scores".


  1. I love it.

    This hockey stick legged baby is awesome.

  2. There are no English words to describe that awesome.

  3. I am fully behind this as I was Vote For Rory. C'mon CBC, make the right decision!

  4. Between seeing this and the Jaane Pesonen tribute video yesterday, I'm officially tripped the fuck out.

  5. bwahahaha. Love it.

    I was half expecting "my spoon is too big!" to be busted out at any moment.

  6. i actually had this in my head all day yesterday, and i'm still not sure how that is possible

  7. This is clearly the winner. From the very first sheep bleat, I can picture hockey. It makes ME want to play hockey.

    I'm putting it on permanent rotation on my iPod.
