Rewind: Patton Oswalt on the worst Christmas song ever

1 Comment

The only way this post has anything to do with marketing, advertising or search-engine optimization is because there is an exchange of goods and services — and multilevel marketing is mentioned at some point — and because people hit this blog searching for this video. Well, here it is.

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 strings together the La Quinta Inn, a state fair, Fashion Bug, and multilevel marketing. There is some strong language. Put the headphones on if you’re at work or if the kids are still up.

  1. That’s pretty harsh on Patton – I think I’ve accidentally made the worst Christmas song of all time… http://wp.me/p1Ae53-7j
