Jingle Cows

Jingle Cows

You may recall that time when farmer Derek Klingenberg serenaded his herd of cattle with Lorde’s Royals. This time he’s back with a little holiday trombone cheer for the bovines. Who knew cows liked popcorn?

Neighborhood Xmas Light Show

Neighborhood Xmas Light Show

We haven’t decided what’s more impressive here – the technological wizardry needed to wire up and synchronize all of these houses in a single light show, or the idea that this many neighbors could agree to do this.

The Ultimate Ugly Xmas Sweater

December

December

Not everyone looks forward to Christmas. And we’re not talking about lonely people or atheists. One hell of a dark comedy short from director Andreas Pasvantis and producer 328 Stories.
