Dundee Stars appeals to Ukraine sending musical hits from the 2000s


Dundee Stars have marked their next ‘throwback’ game with a hit musical tribute to the 2000s – while expressing their solidarity with the people of Ukraine.

The ice hockey team, based at Dundee Ice Arena, released a video last night showing the team miming Black Eyed Peas, Wheatus and Enrique Iglesias.

Striker Craig Garrigan kicks things off with Let’s Get It Started, followed by Toms Rutkis singing the underdog Teenage Dirtbag anthem.

Connor Sills, Kyle Haas, Adam Morrison and Drydn Dow then dispatch Enrique’s hero before defender Michael Poirier and forward Charlie Combs exchange raps on Eminem’s hit Lose Yourself.

The guys even manage to send some of the tropes from 2000s music videos – from bucket hats to dramatically lit power ballads.

But the clip ends on a poignant note as the whole crew sing along to Where Is The Love? of the Black Eyed Peas. while holding the Ukrainian flag.

Viewers are then encouraged to donate to Unicef’s emergency fund to support families displaced by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The video was enthusiastically received by Stars fans posted on Facebook.

Louise Lumsden said, “Ahaha, that’s awesome. What an effort…pop stars in there.”

Alastair Brookes added: “So proud to be a fan of this club and to be part of their incredible journey!”

In the past, the team has paid homage to 80s and 90s hits with music videos featuring Wham and the Backstreet Boys – wearing matching era-inspired hockey shirts.
