Penguins make parody of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Friday December 19th, 2014

The San Jose Sharks had a big hit with their ugly sweater video, but it's definitely not the best holiday-themed video by an NHL team. 

The Pittsburgh Penguins really kicked things up a notch by reenacting scenes from Christmas Vacation

While the players' acting falls a bit short, there is some top-notch editing from the Pens' production staff. The great thing about using technology to bring all the players together is you don't have to worry about anybody catching the mumps.
