Jack Black and Jason Segel Record a Christmas Duet

11 December 2010 1:12 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Just a couple of weeks before Gulliver’s Travels is due to hit theaters, co-stars Jack Black and Jason Segel are already in Yuletide mode.

They have recorded an updated version of the 1977 hit “Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth,” which featured David Bowie and Bing Crosby on vocals. While Black and Segel are definitely a different genre, it definitely is worth checking out. Watch it after the jump.

“Why it’s Jason Segel the actor!”

“Hi Jack Black.”

Featuring a classic cartoon animation style, the video, posted on College Humor, starts off with a conversation between the two actors. Segel is paying a neighborly visit to borrow some ginger but then spots the piano, and a duet is born.

It is actually good, keeping the classical Yuletide tone while providing elements of rock, in typical Jack Black style. It is available for download on iTunes.

Your daily December dose of holiday cheer comes courtesy of Jason Segel and Jack Black, who co-star in the most recent big-screen adaptation of "Gulliver's Travels," in theaters on Dec. 22.

Courtesy of College Humor, the two stars get animated to sing a version of the "Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth" mashup popularized by Bing Crosby and David Bowie in 1977 for the "Bing Crosby's Merrie Olde Christmas" special.

What's kind of cool is that the new version is still very sedate, filled with the banal small talk that was a hallmark of the original.

"It always helps to play a holiday carol when I'm feeling fretful," says cartoon Segel before launching into the song.

We also quite like cartoon Black's Christmas tree sweater and how they captured that manic look in his eyes.

Here's the original version for comparison:

Happy 75th Birthday Woody Allen from Atom, Dan Meth

1 December 2010 9:31 AM, PST | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Woody Allen turns 75 today. I wasn't aware his birthday was any kind of internet event. Sure, the Diamond Anniversary of the birth one of the most influential American film directors of all time doesn't receive as much attention from the internet as something like Talk Like a Pirate Day, but it's getting some play. New York newspaper articles, the launch of the third season of independent web series duder, and the following spoof tribute on Comedy Central's shows Allen maintains at least some degree of credibility in internet pop culture. In Woody Allen, This is Crazy, Tony Forkush provides the uncanny vocal impersonation of Allen (which is so good, there's even a disclaimer at the top of the video indicating it's not the real deal), while the very talented, Streamy Award-winning animator Dan Meth provides the visual effects, spot on dialogue, and Allen's picture perfect neurotic, »
