VIDEO: Maryland cannot sing, Bino Ranson demands creative control

Dec 24, 2012, 12:30 PM EST

Normally, I’m not a huge fan of the singing videos that hoops teams come out with.

You see a lot of them this time of year, and while it’s always good to chuckle at just how bad some of the guys are as singers, it’s usually just the same old thing.

I always get the feeling that these videos are more fun to make than they are to watch.

And, thanks to Maryland’s basketball team, I now have proof of that.

Watch the Terps sing Frosty the Snowman, and make sure you stay around for the final two minutes of outtakes:

While watching Scott Spinelli and Bino Ranson bicker like two fourth-graders is hysterical, there are three moments in that video that really make it: 1) Pe’Shon Howard calling Charles Mitchell “Charlie the Snowman”; 2) Pe’Shon Howard saying that this isn’t Destiny’s Child, he’s Beyonce; 3) Every moment that includes Alex Len.

And if that wasn’t enough, how about a holiday-themed Q-and-A sesh:

And for what it’s worth, this is clearly the best Christmas song.
