Storyline

A heart warming tale of four children trying to decide which to cheer for: Jesus, or Santa. It almost makes one wonder what Brian Boitano would do in this situation. In the end, though, they decide that Christmas isn't a time for settling old scores, Christmas is about one thing: presents. Written by Austin Williams <sporks5000@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The music played during the confrontation between Jesus and Santa is from Mortal Kombat 3. More specifically, the continue screen music (playing during the "verbal battle"), the Fatality music (playing when Jesus and Santa shout their initial "battle cries"), and finally the background music from the Subway level (during the actual fight).

OH MY GOD!
15 November 2000 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the funniest thing I've ever seen. I got a hold of it back in 97 and I still watch it all the time.

Jesus and Santa yelling profanities at each other while asking the kids to vote for them is more than many can stand, but it makes me roll!
