Weihnachtsmann vom Dach

The second in a series of videos around christmas - and this definitely is not your standard seasonal classic. The German punk band Die Toten Hosen (The dead trousers) recorded several christmas songs as Die Rote Rosen (The red roses), and this song from the 1996 album Wir warten auf's Christkind (We are waiting for baby Jesus) was a small hit in Germany and Austria. It is as bizarre as one would expect.
Art Rock score: 7/10 (fun to hear it on the radio)
