Watch: Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly recreate a Christmas classic

Pin it

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have recreated a classic Christmas duet, "The Little Drummer Boy," famously performed by Bing Crosby and David Bowie on Bing's 1977 Christmas TV special. Ferrell, as Bowie, and Reilly, as Crosby, really bring the Christmas spirit with this spoof/homage. What's so amazing about Ferrell and Reilly's rendition is the meticulous attention to detail: the outfits, dialogue, set, even the camera angles and facial expressions, have all been reproduced exactly (with one notable difference occurring at the end of the new version).
