Several 'Hoos in the holiday spirit in new video

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- If you've ever wanted to see Tony Bennett in a helmet and goggles, or Bryce Perkins happily driving a moped, then Virginia had a holiday treat for you on Thursday.

The university released a three-minute holiday video on Thursday that featured cameos from several members of the athletics community, including Bennett and Perkins, basketball players Kyle Guy and Braxton Key, women's basketball coach Tina Thompson and athletic director Carla Williams.

The full video -- which can be seen here -- revolves around getting members of the university community to the Rotunda for a holiday photo shoot organized by new UVA president Jim Ryan. Produced by Erik Duda of UVA Communications, the video's release coincided with Thursday's Lighting of the Lawn.
