The "Little Drummer Boy" Duet Is Not Too Old To Parody

Will Farrell and John C. Reilly recently got together to parody/re-enact the famous David Bowie/Bing Crosby duet from Bing Crosby's 1977 Christmas special, Bing Crosby's Merrie Olde Christmas.

Its difficult to believe the Bowie/Crosby duet ever happened - even thirty-three years after it was released, it just seems weird.

Honestly, my reaction was mostly that the original was fairly charming. I remembered it from my misspent youth as impossibly dull, but back then I didn't get any of the jokes. "Do you listen to any of the old stuff?" "Oh sure, John Lennon and that ... who's that ... Harry Nilsson."

"I even do a little 'White Christmas.'" "Oh, you too?"
