Watch: Holiday Cheer from Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly
It's another remake of the Bowie/Crosby classic 'Little Drummer Boy'
We don’t really know what has inspired the homages to Bing Crosby/David Bowie’s awkward duet of “Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy” that’s since turned into a classic, but we just got our second remake in as many weeks.
Following Jack Black/Jason Segal’s far superior animated version, Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have served up their own Christmas salute to odd couple. Ferrell and Reilly go pretty much for a note-for-note recreation of the Crosby/Bowie TV special--down to the baby blue sweater-- but somehow manage to make it even creepier than the original.
They only veer off at the end, when fake Bowie and Bing’s conversation ends on a less than peaceful note. It’s pretty tame by “Funny or Die” standards and pretty unfunny, but if you’re a Ferrell or Reilly fan, you may find it amusing. We’ve provided the original underneath the new version, in case you’re feeling old school.
