HMS Ocean Does Mariah Carey

>> Monday, December 5, 2011

All these Royal Navy sailors want for Christmas is a recording contract - after a flotilla of them danced around a British warship performing a Mariah Carey classic.

The fine men and women of HMS Ocean have created their own music video for hit song "All I want For Christmas Is You."

It sees them strike a few poses you would not necessarily associate with an intimidating warship - like the bikini top and surfboard two of them show up with.

Their colleagues turn up on camera in their bunks, on deck, wrapped in tinsel and holding a wrench.

The high jinx comes just months after helicopters launched from the amphibious assault ship helped pound Libyan tyrant Colonel Gaddafi's forces in the Nato mission to topple him.

One officer is even caught delivering his lines on the LOO.

Definitely sounds like a number one.
