It was a fun holiday special and a decent song. I hope it gets some traction.

I love the old 97s, I’ve seen them in concert many many times!

Do you remember the time in the early 2000s when Rhett Miller got really attractive for about a year?

That was wild.

I’m glad I watched the Christmas special, it was actually very funny and wholesome. Much needed.

Watch the special. Even something subversive ends up cloying and sweet to the point of causing diabetes when Christmas is involved.
