A Very Daft Punk Christmas

A Very Daft Punk Christmas

We’re not sure from whence this album came from, but we’re 99.999% certain it wasn’t performed by Daft Punk themselves. Still, this mysteriously posted compilation of holiday tunes done in the style of the robots is pretty damned entertaining.

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

(PG-13: Language) Impressionist Scheiffer Bates reading of the classic poem A Visit from St. Nicholas, done in the style of everyone from Peter Griffin to Rick Grimes to Gilbert Gottfried. Most of the impressions are pretty solid, though his Obama sounded like Meatwad to us.

Dear Satan

Dear Satan

(PG-13: Language) A girl mistakenly addresses her letter to the Lord of Hell instead of to Santa Claus. Anomaly London presents a silly and endearing (anti) Christmas story narrated by none other than Sir Patrick Stewart.

A Star Wars Christmas Medley

A Star Wars Christmas Medley

It might seem like an odd combination, but Star Wars fever and Christmas are both upon us, so Nathan Mills‘ medley sorta makes sense. Sit back and enjoy a beautiful guitar performance of classics like Little Drummer Boy, Imperial March, and Silent Night, all rolled into one.

Watered Tree vs. Dry Tree

Watered Tree vs. Dry Tree

We’ve always heard that it’s important to keep your Christmas tree watered, as it’s a safety risk. If you had any doubt why, just watch this brief video from the NIST to see exactly why watering could save your life. A watered tree also drops fewer needles for you to step on.

Hard Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

Hard Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

You will get a sentimental feeling… when you hear… Frog Leap singing ‘let’s be jolly, deck the halls with boughs of holly.’ Enjoy a holiday treat from Leo Moracchioli, as he turns in a tough-as-nails rendition of the 1960 Brenda Lee classic Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.

Minor Key Christmas Carols

Minor Key Christmas Carols

Christmas time can be depressing for some people. To offer an appropriate complement to these dark days, musician Chase Holfelder rearranged holiday classics into sad songs by flipping them into a minor key. All we want for Christmas is to drown our sorrows in eggnog.

LEGO RC Santa’s Amphibious Sleigh

LEGO RC Santa’s Amphibious Sleigh

LEGO master Sariel believes Santa Claus knows about climate change. So he made St. Nick an amphibious sleigh with the help of a thematic part – LEGO Christmas baubles. They’re not completely airtight, but they work well enough as wheels both on ground and in water.

Cox n’ Crendor: The Yule Log

Cox n’ Crendor: The Yule Log

(PG-13: Language) Podcasters Cox n’ Crendor share their favorite new way to celebrate the holidays. Tió de Nadal, a ridiculous Catalan tradition in which people care for a log like a pet, and hope that it poops out presents on Christmas. We couldn’t make this sh*t up.

Crash Testing Kids Toys

Crash Testing Kids Toys

The guys at Switzerland’s Dynamic Test Center perform crash testing on vehicles to help gauge and improve their safety. For the holidays, they gave their crash test dummies the day off and presented them with some toys to play with. Then they took them away and smashed them.

Aliens Keepsake Ornament

Aliens Keepsake Ornament

One of this year’s Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments is a doozy – a detailed miniature version of Ellen Ripley as she prepares to take out the alien queen from the comfort of her trusty P-5000 Powered Work Loader exosuit. Get away from our Christmas lights, you bitch!

Home Invasion: Kevin’s Fate

Home Invasion: Kevin’s Fate

(Gore) Kevin McAllister and John McClane try to fend off Jason Voorhees, gremlins and more goons in this Holiday-themed edit from mega movie mashup maker Antonio Maria Da Silva. Kevin would never have survived the final boss. Not without Batman’s help.

If Elf Was a Thriller

If Elf Was a Thriller

The guys at CineFix recut footage from the Will Ferrell Christmas classic, and transformed it into a dark and twisted psychological thriller – a story about an mentally-unstable man who becomes obsessed with his newfound family.

A Peacock Spider Christmas

A Peacock Spider Christmas

YouTuber Snake Buddies gathered and edited videos of peacock spiders from fellow YouTuber Peacockspiderman to make it seem like the Casanovas of arachnids were partaking in the Holiday spirit. The snowspiderman is somehow both cute and creepy.

Scut Farkus’ Holiday Tips

Scut Farkus’ Holiday Tips

Actor (and friend of The Awesomer) Zack Ward reprises his role of Scut Farkus to advise on how to protect yourself from bullies, and then how to make the perfect snowball. Be sure to drink your Ovaltine, and watch A Christmas Story for 24 hours straight starting Christmas Eve.

Breakfast Dessert Pasta

Breakfast Dessert Pasta

Binging with Babish attempts to replicate the insanely sweet breakfast meal that Buddy the Elf made in the Christmas classic. The spaghetti starts out looking tasty, then it goes far off the rails. We can’t believe Will Ferrell managed to gulp this stuff down without gagging.

The Magic of Christmas

The Magic of Christmas

Consistently weird animator Cyriak offers up a holiday greeting in the only way he knows how, with a brief and trippy take on where presents really come from, and what really happened to all that garland that you thought the cat ate.

It’s A Wonderful Life: Alternate Ending

It’s A Wonderful Life: Alternate Ending

“Do you people know how money works?” The guy playing George sounds more like Jerry Seinfeld than James Stewart, but this parody by Above Average is still amusing, as the town attempts to pool their resources to save the old Building and Loan, and fails miserably.

The 12 Days of Christmas

The 12 Days of Christmas

(PG-13: Language) On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… You know the drill. This animated short from Blink mocks the absurdity of the whole crazy list of gifts, which reads a bit like the list of random junk you might pick up in a game of Katamari Damacy.

Christmas with the Kangaroos

Christmas with the Kangaroos

(PG-13: Language) During a recent performance in Sydney, Australia, Chris Martin and the guys from Coldplay brought a little bit of their own holiday cheer with a charming original tune. And with that, we’ve filled our weekly quota of Australian Christmas songs.
