Patton Oswalt on the worst Christmas song ever

The only way this post has anything to do with marketing, advertising or journalism, is because there is an exchange of goods and services — and multilevel marketing is mentioned at some point.

That said, I gladly present a video of Patton Oswalt — one of my personal heroes — deconstructing the horrifyingly bad song Christmas Shoes. I love any bit that works in a jokes about La Quinta Inn, a state fair, Fashion Bug, and multilevel marketing.
