Mel Blanc's Christmas Tree

In 1953, Mel Blanc recorded a novelty Christmas tune called "Christmas Tree". An adaptation of the old German teaching song "Schnitzelbank", it gave Blanc the opportunity to sing in the character of a crazy German professor. It inspired one kid named L. Rapchak. It inspired him so much, in fact, that 50 years later, he decided to create a Youtube video. The backstory he gives at the beginning explains the rest, but it's absolutely hysterical.

Heh, that was pretty fun.

Guy reminds me of Eddie Fitzgerald though for some reason. Someone should sent this to him.
