Jack Black, Jason Segel Release Holiday Song, Animated Video
As the holiday season approaches, Christmas songs are coming out of the woodwork. Funny guys (and co-stars of the upcoming comedy "Gulliver's Travels") Jason Segel and Jack Black released their own take on classic carols today (Dec. 7).
Video: Jason Segel and Jack Black, "Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy"
In the animated video, Jason Segel visits Jack Black's house to borrow some ginger (he likes the smell of it) and discovers a piano. Before Segel hits a note, Black tells him, "I must warn you that this piano has been sprinkled with magic winter dust by Santa Claus himself."
Segel takes his chances anyway and the two launch into David Bowie and Bing Crosby's 1982 holiday mash-up of "Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy." The truly epic Black and Segal version of the track was released today (Dec. 7) on iTunes, with proceeds going to Blue Star Familes, a non-profit organization benefiting military families.
