Drunk History: The Night Before Christmas

For those who didn't get enough of Ryan Gosling this year with fantastic turns in The Ides of March, Crazy Stupid Love and Drive, a bit of an early Christmas present has manifested itself in the form of Funny or Die's holiday themed installment of their hilarious on-going series Drunk History. Comedian Allan McLeod painstakingly tries to recite The Night Before Christmas after having half a bottle of whiskey (a fine Christmas dinner for anyone), but thankfully, Gosling, Jim Carrey and Eva Mendes chip in to help tell this complicated story of Christmas magic. Who can remember all of Santa's reindeer anyway? Watch!

Here's Drunk History's fantastic re-telling of The Night Before Christmas from Funny or Die:

This might be the funniest thing Jim Carrey has done in a long time, and it's always great to see an actor of Gosling's caliber take the time to do something nonsensical and silly like this. Funny or Die has really blossomed into a hilarious assortment of videos featuring some of the best names working in entertainment today just having fun on the internet like the rest of us. For those not familiar with Drunk History, there's a whole assortment of videos featuring the likes of Jack Black, Michael Cera, Danny McBride, Will Ferrell Crispin Glover, and many more reenacting drunken memories of the most famous moments in history.
