Christmas on acid

Normally, I don’t like Christmas stuff before December 1st, but this year and particularly this Fall have just been so spectacularly crappy that I feel the need. I’ve gotta have a hit of the beautiful freakery that is the Vestibules‘ song Christmas on Acid, accompanied by bizarre out-takes of classic Christmas cartoons. My only regret is that this video is 100% Davy and Goliath-free.

Christmas on Acid
A family gathering with presents and fun
Another Christmas and this one’s wonderful
Presents and cheer, candy canes and gingerbread men

But wait, the gingerbread men have come alive
They’re moving round the room and now they’re on fire
They’re moving round the room and now they’re on fire

Why do I see these things?
It’s not the rum and egg nog
It’s not the holiday fun
It’s Chrismas on acid
Christmas on acid

My stocking’s full of spiders and snakes
My little cousins have become walking talking fruitcakes
The whole family’s looking at me cause I’ve got the shakes

Why do I see these things?
It’s not the rum and egg nog
It’s not the holiday fun
It’s Chrismas on acid
Christmas on acid

The turkey’s dancing on grandma’s head
And her eyes are a devil red
Santa’s dead, oh Santas dead

Why do I see these things?
It’s not the rum and egg nog
It’s not the holiday fun
It’s Chrismas on acid
Christmas on acid

  1. you remember davey and goliath?! i remember watching that cartoon on sunday mornings. in fact, i think that i watched them in their original broadcast.

  2. Moi aussi. But I seem to have made a full recovery. I think my skepticism was an offshoot of my early attempts to parse the Davy and Goliath myths with the Gumby and Pokey ones; when it became clear they didn’t match up I became the cynic I am to this day.
