Maple Leafs butcher Jingle Bell Rock

In an effort to wish everyone happy holidays, the Toronto Maple Leafs put out a video of several players singing Jingle Bell Rock. But the team's good intentions didn't exactly bring out the best voices.

Don’t give up your day job.

It’s a tired cliché but one that fits members of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

In an effort to wish everyone happy holidays, the team put out a video of several players singing Jingle Bell Rock.

It was torturous, to say the least, with the worst coming when Leafs forward David Clarkson forgot the words.

Have a look. Warning: this isn’t pretty.
