New Christmas Classic? Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly As Bing And Bowie

If you need a break and have a few minutes, consider this video. As the Associated Press says, "Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have added a comedic twist to David Bowie and Bing Crosby's classic Christmas duet" (fair warning, there are are couple bleeped-out expletives at the end):

It had been a long while since we'd watched the original 1977 TV duet (which you can see here). A few years ago, The Washington Post told the story of how that wonderfully bizarre pairing almost didn't happen.

Re-doing the Bowie-Crosby Christmas classic seems to be the thing to do this year. Funny guy actors Jack Black and Jason Segel have done a cartoon version.
