Yes, Disney's blockbuster animated movie "Frozen" is an obsession with the kindergarten set, but it also warms the hearts of a tougher crowd.
A YouTube video of a group of Marines happily singing along as Queen Elsa belts out her Oscar-winning hit "Frozen" has gone viral, and for good reason. The Marines not only know the words and sing along, complete with jazzy "spirit fingers," but at 2:20, they send up a flag-raising roar when Elsa takes down her hair and transforms into the ice-spitting, sexy queen of the snows.
Marine Bill Nuche, who put up the video, wrote on Facebook: "We had the subtitles on so we could sing along. They went crazy over the part where she lets her hair down because it's really hot." (He later agreed with a Facebook reader who joked, "You've been gone too long when you think a cartoon letting her hair down is hot.")
But Nuche predicted that it might not be as popular with his superiors as it was with the general public. "I did not (know) that my video would get this popular," Nuche wrote. "Yep the colonel will probably be puttin us on lockdown anyway now."
He was right.
"One of our NCOs came to inspect the barracks," Nuche later wrote. "Apparently a Facebook friend of his shared my video. He requested I take it down. So I shall. But it's already out there. There is no stopping it now, mwah ha ha!"
Elsa said it best: Can't hold it back any more!
