Calgary’s mayor was forced to sing “Let it Go” yesterday, just as he let go of his Stanley Cup dreams.
The humiliating act was the result of a bet Naheed Nenshi made with Anaheim mayor Tom Tait earlier this year over which team would crush the other during the playoffs. With the Calgary Flames now almost a month out of being defeated on the ice, the mayor finally made good on his word.
Donning an Anaheim Ducks jersey, Nenshi stood in front of city council and sung the Academy Award winning track from the hit film Frozen (because it’s not like we aren’t all sick of hearing it at this point anyway, right?)
This wasn’t a solo performance though. Calgary’s mayor had a little help from local acapella group the Heebee-Jeebees and some kids wearing Flames gear, since he was apparently terrified of getting up there to sing alone. As part of the bet, Nenshi will also donate an unspecified amount to Accelerate Change Together, a youth project in Anaheim.
As for the singing itself? You’ll definitely be smiling, we can promise that much.
