Yeah, count me in this camp too. Also, being entirely unfamiliar with "Little Drummer Boy" in the first place, the humour was less relateable. The other thing that threw me off was the pacing, it was about two minutes before the joke kicked in, which is much slower than usual for a LRR sketch.

On the plus side, Featherweight's art is great as always, and it's always nice to hear Paul's excellent singing voice. Unfortunately, I laughed more at the stinger with Kathleen and the dinosaur sweater than the rest of the video.

I'm seeing Graham and Kathleen as Joseph and Mary, though whether that's me or the art couldn't say.

I tried to watch... But I worked over christmas in retail in a store with a very limited tape loop meaning I heard Little Drummer Boy every twelve minutes. It-it- the f - it -flam - flames. Flames, on the side of my face!

I've only seen this vid once. It was the first time I ever heard the song. It's still sounding around in my head.

So I kind of feel your pain.

I have no problem with humour that builds slowly. There just was not enough pay off in this video to justify the slow start.

Okay, like Jay Blanc I have suffered under that particular carol far too much...

...but for me, the video was cathartic - GO MARY!!! :D


Not quite 'funny', but still an enjoyable experience; thank you Paul & Featherweight!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

It made me chuckle throughout. I'm happy with how it turned out.

I also saw this. Also don't know if it was the art or my own projections, but since its more than one person that decreases the odds of personal projections, I feel.

Additionally, is there any way to get that stinger a video of its own? I've probably watched it two or three (maybe four) times already but still have only seen the video once.

Additional note: I liked the video. Not sure I actually said that before because I felt liking an LRR video was implicit. :P

Working in retail, I had to listen to "Drummer Boy" approximately ten million times each week since Thanksgiving.

This has helped me to heal the damage. Thank you LRR.

Thank you.

Like others this feel flat for me....which may have something to do with the fact I've never heard "Little drummer boy" before.

I got the joke and it was a well made video, I just lacked the background to really make it for me.

Hey, they could make this live now... and Kathleen might well be happy to vent! ;)
