With the Stanley Cup playoffs officially underway, heart-thumping pump-up videos and montages have sprung up across the country to get fans ready for the action.
Most of these videos are chock-full of highlights and on-ice heroics of the NHL’s star players. This Tampa Bay Lightning music video is not.
The video, which features the rapper Jinx and a large number of dancing Lightning fans, remixes the popular Lil Jon song “Turn Down For What” to create a new anthem called “We Want the Cup.” Check it out below.
Full of swimming pools and sun, the video doesn’t exactly evoke images of grueling playoff hockey played on a frozen sheet of ice. In fact, the anthem features no actual references to the sport aside from occasional references to star players like forward Steven Stamkos and goaltender Ben Bishop.
To give the song some credit, though, it’s extremely catchy, and the fans in the video seem pretty passionate about the fact that they do, indeed, want the Cup.
