Notes on Pop Culture, Christmas Edition: Fallon as Pattinson, Ferrell & Reilly as Bowie & Crosby, Conan's Eccentric Decorator

Jimmy Fallon Strikes Again with Robert Pattinson ‘Bothered’ by Christmas Shopping

This ongoing spoof of Twilight vampire Edward Cullen, played by Robert Pattinson, can be goofy and silly at times, but I like Jimmy Fallon’s Pattinson impersonation where he was sitting in a tree and complaining about all things Christmas shopping, particularly when it comes to venturing out at 5:30 in the morning.

FYI: The video is NOT for kids.

Will Ferrell & John C. Reilly Do David Bowie & Bing Crosby’s Drummer Boy

Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy with Will Ferrell & John C. Reilly from Will Ferrell

This video – a parody on the real duet sung by David Bowie and Bing Crosby -- has a substantial creep factor to it. I think it’s Ferrell’s make-up and God awful hair. Um . . . Merry Christmas?

Here’s the real Bowie/Crosby video. Come to think of it, the original video feels a bit off too, can’t put my finger on precisely why though.

Which is creepier, the actual Bowie/Crosby version or the Ferrell/Reilly version?

Conan's Got an Eccentric Yuletide Decorator

First, Team Coco spoke with this eccentric "holiday decorator" about what kind of Christmas and Hanukkah decorations they should put on Conan's set. After some consulting -- as seen in the video above -- this was the insane result:

Who says Godzilla holding a candy cane, King Kong with Santa's sleigh aloft over his head, a UFO, a giant sandwich and a robo-rabbi don't go together as naturally as tinsel and a Christmas tree?
