San Jose Sharks release cringe-worthy Christmas music video

The San Jose Sharks, by and large, haven't been much fun to watch this season.
The usually-dominant Western Conference team is currently sitting on 32 points, a point outside the final Wild Card spot in the West.
And on Monday, a few hours after laying an egg in a 2-1 loss to the lowly Edmonton Oilers, the Sharks released a quirky rap music video through its official Twitter account.
But the Christmas-themed video is nothing to brag about.
In my opinion, it's forced, unoriginal and not all that comical. In other words, it's been done before.
Some of the more uncomfortable five minutes in hockey history stars -- deep breath -- Tomas Hertl, Antti Niemi, Matt Nieto, Alex Stalock, James Sheppard, John (Don’t Call Me Snoop) Scott, Matt Irwin, Barclay Goodrow, Mirco Mueller, Chris Tierney, Brenden Dillon, and broadcasters Randy Hahn and Dan Rusanowsky. Former Shark Jason Demers, now with the Dallas Stars, even makes an appearance.
The team is not much fun to watch off the ice, either, it appears.
Here are some other hockey Christmas classics for you to enjoy.
