10 Christmas Videos to Distract You From Your Family [VIDEO]
Well it’s that time of year again. If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you just travelled several hours to visit family and friends. And if you arrived more than 4 hours ago, it might be time to take a little break. Here’s a few videos to kill some time before meeting your former high school friends at the local bar, singing carols around the fire, or whatever else you do on Christmas Eve. We’ll try to keep it winter or Christmas-related so you have an excuse.
1. Metallica Christmas Lights
Slayer Bob MAKES METAL CHRISTMAS LIGHT SHOWS AND ONLY TYPES IN CAPS. Check out his YouTube channel for Slayer, Machine Head and more.
2. The Scary Snowman
This prank is so basic, but we can’t stop watching. If you enjoy watching people get scared by a giant snowman on the street, check out this YouTube channel.
3. Slade- ‘Merry Christmas Everybody’
Most Christmas songs get pretty annoying year after year. Except this one. Talk about a catchy chorus. It’s almost a shame this song only appears during Christmas.
4. Family Guy ‘All I Really Want for Christmas’
5. Love Actually’s ‘Christmas is All Around’?
Beneath our cynical exterior, there’s a soft nougat center that rears its sappy head at least once a year. Just in time to watch Love Actually. Say what you will, that movie has some great moments. Like this one with Bill Nighy. We want to witness this moment of brutal honesty in real life. If only The Who would just go for it…
6. Christmas Tree on Fire
Ok, we’ve returned from our Rom Com clip with a demonstration of what happens if you forget to water your Christmas tree. Spoiler: it burns really quickly. If you fancy the fir, feed it from the faucet. PSA over.
7. Doctor Who Christmas Special
For anyone looking for something to watch on Christmas day, BBC America is airing “Doctor Who: The Snowmen” at 9pm. Here’s the trailer.
8. RUN-DMC ‘Christmas In Hollis’
Old school hip hop? Check.
9. F*** Me Santa
This movie is wrong on so many levels. NSFW, but seriously- if you’re at work on Christmas Eve watching YouTube videos, there’s probably no one around who cares, so it’s cool.
10. The Pogues Featuring Kirsty MacColl – ‘Fairytale Of New York’
We’ll just use the caption from YouTube: Official video for the The Pogues Featuring Kirsty MacColl – Fairytale of New York. Arguably the greatest Christmas song of all time!
