Still more lazy thoughts from this one…

Seasonal Cheer via Art & Song

Merry Xmas

Some in-laws sent a link our way and we enjoyed it so much I thought to share. All care of cartoonist Joshua Held, it redeployed The Drifters‘ absolutely wonderful 1954 cover (©Altantic Records) of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas to a stellar result. And yes, that’s the same song MacCaulay Culkin famously lip-synch’d in John Hughes Home Alone. Featuring the tenor of lead singer Clyde McPhatter and the bass of Bill Pinkney, the illustrator matched it up beautifully in his simple but thoroughly entertaining bit of animation, I’d say.

Merry Christmas.

      Yeah, it’s now very much associated with that film. And I’ll be sure to read what you have on your blog, mummbles. Many thanks.
