The 12 Vids of Christmas

Do you find yourself too busy to sit down and watch Elf for the eleventh time this month? Would seeing A Christmas Story again make you want to shoot your eye out? Instead of resorting to the Hallmark Channel for your Christmas addiction, why not search YouTube for your newest holiday specials? We’ve compiled a list of twelve different comedic videos to check out before the Christmas holiday is through.

12. AVGN – The 12 Days of Shitsmas

We’ve all gotten that one terrible video game as a Christmas present. You know, like when you asked for Fallout 4, but grandma got you Monster High New Ghoul in School instead? Well, why not watch a grown man subject himself to twelve different terrible games, instead of focusing on the fact that I….uh, you are missing out on your favorite video game adventures.

11. 5secondfilms – Santa Baby

Okay, so maybe you don’t have the time to watch a 30 something torture himself with terrible video games twelve times in a row. If that’s the case, be sure to check out this short film that literally lasts only five seconds, yet still sums up the Christmas season so perfectly.

10. Boogie2988 – Christmas Video Game Rage!

Relatives pressuring you to make better and/or healthier decisions with your life? Don’t worry, you’re not alone as Boogie2988’s character, Francis, gets a rude awakening from his sister in the form of unwanted gifts.

9. Tomska – Christmas Demolition

For those of us who want to watch the whole holiday season burst into a fiery implosion, or just need to see the next best thing to Die Hard, Youtuber Tomska has you covered with this spectacle of holiday themed destruction.

8. FilmCow – The 12 Days of Nickmas

From the creators of Charlie the Unicorn and Llamas with Hats, comes this campy tale of a friend giving gifts to his best pal Nick. The greatest part? Things go as well as you’d expect from the team who made a video called Chris Brown: American Superhero. 

7. JaboodyDubs – Santa Claus Conquers the Martians Dub

You ever heard of Santa Claus Conquers the Martians? If not, consider yourself lucky, as the title alone should suggest how terrible the film is.  Trust us when we say you’ll have a much more pleasant time watching some person dubbing over it, instead of paying money to watch the real thing.

6. ERB – Donald Trump Vs Ebenezer Scrooge

Despite being made a couple of years ago, it would appear Epic Rap Battle‘s Trump vs. Scrooge rap would be more relevant now than ever with Trump’s presidential campaign. It’s safe to say that Scrooge’s greediness isn’t the scariest thing going on this winter break.

5. Simon’s Cat – Santa Claws

Almost every day, household pets can help bring a sense of joy and love into a person’s life, whether it be a dog, a cat or even a goldfish to a child. But pets on the holidays? That’s a completely different story.

 4. Nigahiga – 10 Cheap Punny Christmas Gifts!

Perhaps it’s a little too late to be purchasing more Christmas gifts with the holiday just around the corner, but it’s never too late to find those special prank gifts! In this Buzzfeed parody, Nigahiga gives us a taste of exactly how to trick your greedy friends this Christmas.

 3. Psychicpebbles – A Hellbenders Christmas

Two young carolers encounter a yeti and Jesus in their bid to spread Christmas cheer. Doesn’t sound all that odd, right?  You’d be mistaken though, as one could only imagine what animators Zach Hadel and Chris O’ Neill have in store for us.

2. Eddsworld – The Snogre

Magical snowman? Check. Bloated holiday egos? Check. A snow monster born from radioactive waste falling from the sky? What holiday wouldn’t be complete without one!?

1. Nostalgia Critic – F**cking Love Christmas

To those unaware, The Nostalgia Critic has been spreading his dedicated, if a bit creepy, obsession with Christmas since the beginning of his YouTube career. However, even his most dedicated fans could not have expected this amount of “Christmas cheer” to pour out of him at once.

(Warning: Do not watch if you are sensitive to flashing colors/lights)
