A band that is known for its vaudeville-style kitsch (no matter what they say) has teamed up with a well-known actress/singer for what is sure to become a classic. Or maybe just an incredibly popular act--which can now boast of a video on YouTube getting over half a million views since...yesterday.
The song--charmingly called “Text Me Merry Christmas”--by Straight No Chaser features Kristen Bell on lead vocals. It is available from the band’s newly released version of their EP, "Under The Influence: Holiday Edition.” It’s being touted by Buzzfeed as “the perfect song for our technologically-dependent selves." Straight No Chaser said they were “hanging on every word that Bell sang” and “weren’t looking at our phones.” What could be more cheery than staring at your phone during the holidays, waiting for that little two-word phrase to let you know that you are still loved and wanted?
