Video Vault, Episode 15: Save Ferris “Christmas Wrapping”

In light of this year’s Thanksgivukkah I thought it would be nice to remember one of the best Christmas songs ever written about being a disgruntled Jew. It’s a cover/joke of the lovely Waitresses song, Christmas Wrapping by one of my favorite bands from the 90s, Save Ferris. There isn’t an official video available, but some guy on you tube has done wonders with power point.

In Los Angeles, we never had a white Christmas, but thanks to KROQ we always had Kevin and Bean’s Christmas album. I’m pretty sure 1998 was the best year. “Christmas Wrapping” was the 5th track but there are quite a few gems, here’s the complete track listing:

1. Ben Stein – Introduction
