In anticipation of Michael Buble's first Holiday Special, "A Michael Buble Christmas" which airs tonight December 6 at 8pm on NBC, the Grammy winning singer has just unveiled a very funny short video with "The Office" star Ed Helms called "A Christmas Ham Sandwich."
Buble and Helms star in this hilarious video as two fictional singers named Rogers (played by Helms) and Frank (played by Buble). Buble is dressed up in an ironic ugly christmas sweater and a mustache, while Ed Helms wears white bell bottoms and platforms shoes. The outfits are almost as funny as they are.
Buble plays a shy and understated nerd and plays it well, while Helms brags about their musical accomplishments.
"We've been talking to NASA, we're planning a concert on the moon," says Helms.
The two characters talk about their upcoming Christmas special, "Its sort of like if someone gave you your own TV show to celebrate christmas and was like, 'here do this.'" says Helms. I guess that's the most straightforward way of describing it.
If you're wondering why the video is called "A Christmas Ham Sandwich" let's let them explain:
"Frank is a ham," says Helms, "and I'm like two pieces of bread and together we're like a christmas ham sandwich." Enough said...I guess.
The two dudes leave you with this parting message, "If you dont watch this show, then you hate christmas." If that isn't enough incentive to watch Buble's Holiday special, keep reading.
This will be Buble's first Holiday Special and the telecast itself will feature performances from Justin Bieber, Kelly Pickler, Oscar the Grouch, Latin singer Thalia, a capella group Naturally 7, and music group The Puppini Sisters.
Of his newest Holiday venture, Buble says, "I'm truly excited to be sharing my favorite time of year with millions of people. Doing this Christmas special is a long-time dream of mine."
"We are very excited to partner with Michael Buble on his first holiday special,” said Doug Vaughan, SVP of Special Programs and Late Night for NBC. “We invite our viewers to ring in this holiday season with this incredibly talented performer.
Currently, Buble's Holiday album titled "Christmas" entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at No.3, selling more copies that Rihanna. MORE ALBUMS THAN RIHANNA! Proving that people's moms like to buy Michael Buble albums, in what I like to call the "Josh Groban effect." Thanks everyone's mom!
Buble can be expected to perform classics like "White Christmas" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." Not only will he be singing, but unveiling more digital shorts with Ed Helms throughout the night.
