Every Christmas season brings us a litany of competing versions of the same tunes. This year, though, comedic actors seem to battling it out as much as would-be Tony Bennetts. Last week we LOLed at Jack Black and Jason Segel’s bombastic arena rock version of the Bing Crosby and David Bowie duet “Little Drummer Boy/Peace On Earth.” This week, Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly threw their hat into the ring with their own version of the holiday classic.

They parody the original by playing it straight, even sticking to the same silly script. Reilly plays the blue-cardiganed Crosby, and Ferrell, whose hair looks like something crawled on top of his head and died, channels Bowie. The highlight you ask? Ferrell’s faux-serious crooning face during the duet. Next week, Zach Galifianakis and Seth Rogan. We hope. Check out the video below. (via Funny or Die)
