Let These Oxford A Cappella Boys Make Your Holiday Dreams Come True

December 17, 2014

Classic holiday carols are nice and all. But as anyone born in the last 30ish years knows, there’s really only one Christmas song that matters.

The song of which we speak, of course, is “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” as immortalized by Mariah Carey circa 1994. It is delicious holiday perfection.

The only way to make it more perfect, in fact, would be to get a group of cheek-pinchably-cute college boys to sing it a cappella. And since no a cappella routine is complete without a little choreography, those boys, in our dream scenario, would be dancing, too.

Well, Santa might be real, guys, because it looks like that Christmas wish of ours just came true. Out of the Blue, an all-male a cappella group from the University of Oxford, has released a holiday video that tops even our highest holiday expectations.

Yes, the OOTB boys are adorable. Yes, they’re singing “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” and they’re more than capable of handling Mariah’s vocal acrobatics. Yes, their choreography is on-point (though not, sadly, on pointe). But here’s what takes everything to the next level: This video was filmed on Oxford’s world-famous, too-picturesque-to-be-true campus. Which means it is basically the Harry Potter version of our dream.


British boys. In suits. Singing and dancing. Thank you, Santa!

We’re not done with the merry-making news, either: Out of the Blue created the video to promote Helen & Douglas House, which provides hospice care for U.K. children in need. All proceeds from the single go right to the charity. So these boys are do-gooders, too.

Is this real life?
