Cosmo the Cougar headlines this week's UTubers supported by an array of Christmas videos from people with ties to Utah.
One comment on the video of Cosmo the Cougar’s light saber battle on Saturday at the BYU vs. Utah basketball game says, “This is so BYU it hurts.” And it may be true. Cougar fans do march along to the Star Wars theme song at sporting events, a tradition that is not easily explained. But over 122,000 people have watched Cosmo, and most seem to agree that “the force is strong with this one.”
During the #LightTheWorld YouTube Live concert, Claire Crosby sang a beautiful rendition of “Let There Be Peace on Earth,” accompanied by her father, Dave Crosby, and two of The Piano Guys, Jon Schmidt and Steven Sharp Nelson.
