I've never been to Virden, Manitoba, but I'm guessing it's a place where you pretty much have to make your own fun.

Of course, there is a hockey team in town: the second-year Oil Capitals of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League, and they no doubt help the 3,114 hardy souls who call Virden their home to make it through the winter. But what about the lads on the team? What do they do for grins? Well, maybe something like this elaborately choreographed Christmas video starring lushly moustachioed defenseman Curtis Houlden and set to the Andy Williams holiday classic, "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year." Check it out before it goes viral.
