'Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy': A modern take on '80s classic



Bing Crosby and David Bowie's duet on Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy is an '80s classic. "Whoa, whoa, whoa," you say. It was done back in 1977 and aired on TV that same year. Yes, but it wasn't released as a single until 1982, so it has been officially grandfathered in as an '80s institution.

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly re-recorded the video line by original line for their website Funny or Die. Sounds like a grand idea, but I got bored halfway through. Reilly sounds like he's still channeling Dewey Cox, and Ferrell is just creepy. Just goes to show you (again) that some things are best left stuck in the '80s.
