The concept behind "Drunk History" is beautiful in its simplicity. Get a comedian stinking drunk, get them to tell a slurred, jumbled version of a historical event, and then film a reconstruction of those events, full of movie-stars lip-syncing to the pissed-up narrator's words. Michael Cera, Don Cheadle, Zooey Deschanel and Will Ferrell number among the A-listers who've featured so far in the series, which is one of Funny or Die's most successful ongoing clips.

Drunk History Christmas

The concept behind "Drunk History" is beautiful in its simplicity. Get a comedian stinking drunk, get them to tell a slurred, jumbled version of a historical event, and then film a reconstruction of those events, full of movie-stars lip-syncing to the pissed-up narrator's words. Michael Cera, Don Cheadle, Zooey Deschanel and Will Ferrell number among the A-listers who've featured so far in the series, which is one of Funny or Die's most successful ongoing clips.

And they've pulled out all the stops for Christmas, as Drunk History's take on the classic poem "The Night Before Christmas" has arrived, with Ryan Gosling showing yet another string to his bow as the man of the house, his real-life lady love Eva Mendes as his wife, and Jim Carrey as Santa. It's funny stuff (if, like most Christmas specials, perhaps not as good as previous installments), and more than worth it to see R-Gos in an adorable hat. Watch it below.
