Hey, I’m in the Christmas spirit and wanted to have a post to celebrate. Here are three of my favorite Youtube Christmas videos. Enjoy!
First, the oddest one, I think, but so charming. From the other land down under, New Zealand, where, just like the Aussies, they’re walking around like flies on the ceiling (but what an easy time they have putting the star on the treetop), comes this strange vid that looks like someone cobbled it together after a few too many brews. I really like it. Hope you do, too!
Next, we turn to a current under-viewed vid: Dan Hicks and The Hot Licks perform their version of Carol of the Bells. It’s a twisted delight to the ears and eyes. (Well, I actually think the visuals are a bit much–but I laugh anyhow.) If you’ve never heard of Dan Hicks and The Hot Licks, they’ve been around forever, and there’s a reason for that. Check out their other Youtubes some time.
Last, a classic, and my all-time favorite. Bless Zach Braff and Donald Faison for giving us their marvelously sung (and kinkily performed) version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”. A million of you have seen it, but in case you haven’t, or even if you have…it’s good enough to view a couple of times every Christmas.
2013/12/07–decided of original 5 vids, 1st 2 were boring; blew ’em away.
