Vancouver Canucks Song: With Pick Five (Prince Parody)

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 “foundation 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”.

Vancouver Canucks Song: One Pick Away (Charlie Puth Parody)

The loyal listeners of the C4 podcast know that I will never be “Team [email protected]” (see…I can’t even say it).  However, 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 brighter with Auston Matthews. Indeed, he would speed up the rebuilding process quite a bit! Big thanks to my son Jacob for singing this one and doing a good job of parodying Charlie Puth’s hit song...

Vancouver Canucks Song: Christmas Rap (with Ben Hutton and Jake Virtanen)

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...

Vancouver Canucks Song: Parody of Maroon 5’s “Sugar” – Sutter

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”.

Vancouver Canucks Song: It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye – Zack, Kevin, and Eddie

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...
