Lunch Break

By Ezra Klein

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly do an almost frame-by-frame reconstruction of the epically awkward and wonderful Bowie-Crosby Christmas collaboration.

I especially note the fact that this isn't so much a parody as an honest-go-goodness sentimental homage by one of the world's great parodists (Ferrell) of a classic collaboration whose extreme susceptibility to parody is only exceeded by its utter sweetness.

Best 5.5 minutes I've stolen work this entire Christmas season.

I think this version is musically superior.
