Caroline Kennedy’s Awkward Dancing Santa Video Is a Christmas Treat

Who’s got a beard that’s long and white? Who comes around on a special night? Must be … Caroline Kennedy?

Kennedy, the United States Ambassador to Japan, stars as Santa Claus in two holiday-themed videos that have gone viral in Japan.

In the first of two clips posted this week to U.S. Embassy Japan’s official YouTube channel, the daughter of John F. and Jackie Kennedy sports a Santa suit and dances to “Must Be Santa” on the roof of the ambassador’s residence in Tokyo. “Santa’s in the house,” Kennedy declares before toppling down the chimney with a sack of presents.

First Image From Nash Edgerton And Spencer Susser's The Captain

One of our most anticipated titles at Sundance 2013 is The Captain, the short film collaboration between directors Nash Edgerton and Spencer Susser - who have made some of the most memorable short films in recent years: Lucky, Spider, Bear and I Love Sarah Jane.Like Nash did with Bear, in which he cast fellow director Warwick Thornton in a small but crucial role, not to mention his "Must Be Santa" music video for Bob Dylan, which had directors Glendyn Ivin and Luke Doolan prancing around a Christmas party, The Captain stars another director chum. This time Eagle vs Shark and Boy director Taika Waititi is the star of the show. Here's the synopsis:a man wakes up with a hangover, only to discover the consequences of...

Watch: Nash Edgerton Directs Music Video for Bob Dylan’s “Duquesne Whistle”

  • The Film Stage
Not content to just be known as “Joel‘s brother,” Nash Edgerton has, in his own time, crafted original and surprising work — the short film Spider and its follow-up, Bear, being the most notable — that’s now landed another job with Bob Dylan. In preparation for his 35th album, Tempest, the planet’s greatest living musician has put out a music video for its debut track, “Duquesne Whistle,” which Edgerton injects with his own violence-laced humor.

What starts out as a sweet chronicle of one man’s bid to garner a woman’s attention transforms, unexpectedly, into the comically (?) violent account of how it could all go so hideously wrong. (You could probably spot him yourself, but, yes, that’s Joel Edgerton as the Irish cap-wearing thug.) Dylan makes an appearance alongside some tough-looking fellows, though the visual appearance is little more than a funny cameo.

Christmas Polka? Thanks, Bob.

Because we are nothing if not consummate Bob Dylan connoisseurs, we would be remiss if we did not direct you to immediately watch the video for "Must Be Santa" from Christmas in the Heart. It's after the jump!

[video: 560x340]

Yup, that's Dylan dressed as the Mad Hatter with the Rachel in wig form. Why? It doesn't matter why. That party looks awesome.

Watch: Bob Dylan's video for 'Must Be Santa'

Is Bob Dylan nuttier than a fruitcake? The evidence strongly suggests yes in the video for “ Must Be Santa.” The infectious polka, which borrows heavily from the repeating theme of “12 Days of Christmas,” is a track off of Dylan’s first holiday CD, “Christmas in the Heart. “ There’s a mildly heated debate about whether the album is a joke or really Dylan’s sincere effort at holiday cheer. Well, the video isn’t going to help clear up matter. It all takes place at a Christmas party in a lovely home in an era that’s impossible to decipher. Could be current, could...
