[Note: This is the short version, without the intro. The intro is pretty special, so if you have an extra 2min19sec, go here for the longer, funnier version: vimeo.com/54727820 also on Youtube under the same name, and for bonus lolz, turn on Youtube's automatic closed-captioning...O.o ]
My 2012 seasonal gift to all.
Assembled using footage from 'Santa Claus Conquers The Martians' (1964) and a short clip of 'Leave It to Roll-Oh' (1940) set to an awesome version of 'Jingle Bells' by Béla Fleck and The Flecktones, from their 2008 album 'Jingle All The Way'.
I hope the respected Mr Fleck and his people don't mind...I cooked this meal with love...and it is probably the best Christmas album ever made, so you should all go-ho-ho out and buy it!!:
Attributionalness: OH! and a tiny, explosive clip of Nina Paley's film 'Sita Sings the Blues' that I forgot to put in the film credits...sorry Nina! I blame that bottle of wine I drank while editing...
Whether you're Earthling or Martian, I wish you a Happy Christmahanakwanzika!, and a Fun & Creative New Year!
