The Magic of Christmas – Delivered

Every holiday has its series of rituals and Christmas is no exception. Whether you’re with family, friends or drinking alone, these two informative videos from Rare Exports will reveal a new facet of Father Christmas that’s sure to make you reconsider everything you know about him.

You’ve probably been told to think about the hard work that went into putting that dinner on the table, but have you ever considered Santa’s origins? After watching the videos below you’ll never take another “Ho!” for granted. You’ll walk away with a deep sense of appreciation for the secret workings behind that jolly visage. A grim, NSFW Christmas tale for the ages awaits beyond the jump!

Thank you, Warren, for shining upon us the light of Christmas truth. And a thanks to Evelyn, too!

    I remember seeing this last year and I had forgotten about it. Thanks for this. It’s just as amazing the second time.

    That…is not at all what I thought it’d be. And I’m so glad. A new Beloved Holiday Classic!

    …I see…



    …and with that…A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL! :D

    Thanks Zo…the children & old people I traumatize this night by making them watch this will have you to thank!

    Side Note: For those playing my unofficial Coilhouse drinking game…a mention of Warren Ellis earns 4 fingers of Whiskey this night!

    Pretty damned awesome. It makes me want to be Finnish, and to make some snarky comment about Santa being a cruel slave driver and his workshops being sweatshops. I can’t think of one, though, because I’m tired and lazy and have a headache and no pants on. Ah, well.

  5. Zoetica Says:

    Wishing I could watch these again while waiting for my plane. Or that I were playing Tequila’s drinking game, for that matter. Glad you dug it, all!

    This is genius! Thanks for posting this Zoe, as it’s given me an edifying perspective on this day of holiday cheer.

    I watched “Safety Instruction” part last night by accident. The one that Santa gets killed and is all bloody.
    But yeah. These are good stuff, saw them all few years ago first time.

    These make me happy to be half-Finnish. Though the only word I could understand was when the guy in the Santa-Armour swore loudly. Those hunters are so bad-ass.

    My dad sent me the first half, but I didn’t see the second one until this post. Rad, rad, rad.

    You’re not missing much in the dialogue. Though when the guy in the armor yelled “PERKELE!” (something like GODFUCKINGDAMMIT!! to Americans) I about fell off my chair. Thanks so much for posting this guys. Happy New Year.
