HMS Sailors Sing 'All I Want for Christmas'
Mariah Carey is thrilled with the men and women of Britain's Royal Navy after the crew of the HMS Ocean posted a music video set to Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You." The sailors, some dressed in uniform, others dressed in only the Union Jack, sway back and forth and lip-synch to Carey's heavy-rotation Christmas tune. The Ocean had planned to have a seven-week deployment this year, but was diverted to Libya and other operations and has been gone for 7 1/2 months. No wonder the crew is getting a little punchy. On Twitter, Carey said, "This is the best thing I've ever seen, you guys just made my day! Happy Happy Christmas!!! x0x0 to the troops." The Ocean will be returning home on Friday after 225 days away, with 176 of them at sea.
