Appropriate.

I know that most of you will probably be listening to this on Christmas morning with your families, as it is written in the Book of Ancient and Normal Traditions, so I’m sorry if I spoiled it for you. I should have made it more clear at the top of this post that this is FOR PEOPLE WITHOUT FAMILIES ONLY. Christmas has come early this year, people without families. (Thanks for the tip, Brian.)

UPDATE: Original “Christmas Shoes” video here. (Thanks, Emiblake.)

  1. Just come out and say it. This is for Jews and terrorists. As a proud member of one of those groups, I thank you.

  2. True story.

  3. This song is the worst. I have to listen to Christmas music at work. The only time I’ve ever called a radio station in my whole life was last week to request that they never play this song again. The intern who answered the phone said several people call every time the song plays and beg for it to stop.

  4. A well done amalgamation of Demetri Martin and Glenn Beck’s seminal story-board comedy.

  5. There is actually a Lifetime made-for-tv movie (starring Rob Lowe) based on this song. I happened to flip past it the other day. And those Christmas shoes? Boy, they fug.

  6. There are many many Christmas songs that are awful. most of them are extra country or extra christian… which is not their fault. Money makes the Christmas go around.
     
    Also: I love Dolly Parton (yes in that way) but Hard Candy Christmas is NOT a Christmas song. I know ‘Christmas’ is in the title but get a clue people! I will stick with my Osmand family Christmas Album thankyoumuch.

  7. I have a version of this bit from a 2004 Yo La Tengo show and I’ve listened to it so many times, but it still makes me laugh. He goes on a few tangents about why the clerk won’t give him the money and it is gold.

  8. Every year I make a vow to never hear Christmas Shoes.

    I’ve been going on two years now of not hearing it, and I listen to Christmas radio! It’s like playing Christmas Russian Roulette.

  9. This is the second Christmas music related laff of the day. I read this gem earlier. Ladies of a certain age (24-27ish) cannot argue with the stated fact: Hanson’s Snowed In is the best Christmas album ever of all time. The older one with the gimpy eye was my favorite. Like how I’m pretending I don’t remember his name??? It’s Isaac! Jonas Brothers, this is your future.

  10. I remember I was driving home with my boyfriend for Christmas last year, and this song came on. He refused me to change it, and then, during the last minute of the song. He started to cry.
    That basically ruined my Christmas and we’re no longer together.
