The crew of a British warship, HMS Ocean, created a 4-minute music video using Mariah Carey’s hit song, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
The video cuts to different places on the ship featuring different members lip syncing Carey’s famous lyrics.
At the end of the video, the crew spells out “Merry Xmas from HMS Ocean.”
The video has garnered over 1 million views to date since it was posted last week. The clip even caught the attention of Carey who took to Twitter to respond.
“This is the best thing I’ve ever seen, you guys just made my day! Happy Happy Christmas!!!,” she tweeted.
The ship, according to AFP, left Plymouth in April for a 7 week training exercise but was diverted to Libya to support UN air mission. It’s is due to return home to Plymouth on Friday.
“Back 9 Dec after 7½ months away – 225 days with 176 at sea,” reads the YouTube caption, which also notes that the ship has 400 people onboard (at peak during the amphibious exercises just under 900 onboard but approx 650 during Op Ellamy).
The song was made famous in 1994, when Carey released the instant hit. It’s since become a staple at holiday parties and other festive Christmas events.
The video must have reminded Carey of how catchy the tune really is. She reminded everyone that they too can send holiday greetings using it.
“Send your holiday greetings with MC’s festive Christmas music! http://www.mariahcareyecard.com
#MCChristmasCountdown, ” she later Tweeted.
