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...


Vancouver Canucks Playoff Anthem: Something Big (Shawn Mendes Parody)

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! Go!  Go Canucks Go! Go!  Go Canucks Go!Play for the Cup you might win...


Channeling the Power of the 5-7-5: Canucks Playoff Haiku

With the Edmonton Oilers’ surprise victory over the Los Angeles Kings last night, the Vancouver Canucks clinched a playoff berth and return to the post-season after a brief one-year absence.  Prior to last season, the last time the Canucks missed the playoffs was the 2007-2008 season. The Canucks have surprised just about everyone with their performance this year as they have a good chance of finishing second in the Pacific Division.  I was quietly confident from the beginning of the season that they would return to the playoffs.  My C4 podcast co-hosts Chris and Matt didn’t share my optimism so...


Channeling the Power of the 5-7-5: Your Canucks Haiku

We were set to record our latest episode of our C4 podcast last night so per usual I sent the word out via my @CanuckClay Twitter account that I was looking for Canucks haiku.  And in particular, I wanted people to try to encapsulate their feelings on the Canucks as they enter into the final two weeks of the regular season. As always, the people responded, and I had a plethora of good 17-syllable creations ready for the podcast.  Unfortunately, we encountered some unforeseeable technical difficulties (and really…when are technical difficulties ever foreseen???) and thus the podcast we recorded (or...

Things That Make You Go Hmmm: No Stats Required Edition

The Canucks are half-way through their 2014-2015 NHL season with a 23-15-3 record for a total of 49 points. The team has slowed down considerably after a strong start and they now sit 4th in the Pacific Division (and in the second wild-card playoff spot) albeit with games in hand on every team in the Western Conference. There are a few concerning things that I’ve noticed in the Canucks’ recent games. And I’ll point them out to you below…without mentioning a single stat. Thus, here are a few things that make you go hmmm: The Canucks aren’t that fast. Up...
