Christmas Card humor

So, I got the inevitable link to a flash Christmas card again this year. This one was hiding out on the servers at Reuters, for some reason…

(Editor’s note: it has since been moved. Here’s a link to the author’s site)

Joshua HeldWhite Christmas – Nov 7, 2007

It just so happens that the version of White Christmas being used to backup the animation is one that I have always liked since I heard it featured on The Santa Clause a few years back. Me being the curious foot chewer that I am, I wrote the following:

So who is singing that version of the song? I don’t recognize the singer.

I should have known what kind of response I would get:

not sure who that is????….sounded/looked like santa to me, with a reindeer accompaniment???????? 🙂 but i realize there are a lot of santa impostors out there….nothing is sacred anymore it seems….everyone trying to cash in on holy-days seasons…..aloha

Yeah, I really set myself up for that one, didn’t I?

So who is the voice behind the big red guy? Well, I tracked down the singers on my own. It would be The Drifters. I’m going to put it on my to buy list for next year. Have a Funky Christmas.
