Watch: Oxford’s all-male singers are back with a camp ‘Santa Baby’ cover

Nick Duffy December 14, 2015

Everyone’s favourite Oxford all-male a capella group are back, with a new camp Christmas charity single.

Out of the Blue, an all-male singing group at the University of Oxford, found fame through their covers of songs including Hips Don’t Lie and Lady Marmalade.

The group released a charity cover of Santa Baby today – and it could be their gayest single yet.

The Christmas single, shot across the uni, is raising funds for children and hospice Helen and Douglas House.

One scene in the music video sees the group stripped off and surrounded by rose petals as singer Tim fantasises: “Think of all the fun I’ve missed… think of all the fellas that I haven’t kissed.”

The group previously explained, of their infamous Shakira video: “As is probably evident from the video, we are not afraid to make ourselves look silly.

“A group of guys shaking their hips and wiggling their bums to Shakira is not what most people expect to see, which I think is why it’s so popular.”

They added: “We’ve recorded the song for charity and all the proceeds go to the hospice Helen and Douglas House, so the most exposure it gets, the better.”

Of course, they’re not the first university society to put themselves to work for charity.

The University of Warwick Boat Club produces an annual naked Warwick Rowers’ calendar – stripping off in order to raise funds for their Sports Allies scheme.
