Ray Stevens, ‘Blue Christmas’ Video Premiere

Clyde Records

Funny man Ray Stevens hams it up in his latest video, an unusual (to say the least) reworking of the classic holiday tune, “Blue Christmas.” In the first part of the clip, Ray stands by a blue piano, wearing red pants and a Santa hat. We can’t help but wonder if maybe somewhere along the way, the egg nog went bad, considering the interspersed footage of pigs featured throughout the video, the pig nose Ray sports, and the fact that he’s singing/stuttering the tune like Porky Pig.

It’s not all played for laughs, however. In the second part of the sax-heavy tune, the legendary entertainer is seated at the piano, playing and singing a more straightforward version of the song (minus pig snout). (Watch the world premiere of the video below!)

Ray is certainly no stranger to comical Christmas songs. This year, in fact, marks the 50th anniversary of his first holiday hit, “Santa Claus Is Watching You,” which he re-recorded and hit with again in 1985.

Check out the clip and, hey, if you’re wondering what to get the singer for Christmas, here‘s something that seems appropriate!
