On the fifth day of Christmas, The Cathode Ray Choob sent to you…
Aimee Mann’s lesson about the true meaning of Christmas.
Last year and the year before, singer-songwriter Aimee Mann made a couple of star-studded short comedy films that were screened during her Christmas gigs each year.
It also features some big-name actor friends including Michael Cera (Superbad, Juno, Arrested Development), John Krasinski (from the US version of The Office) and John C Reilly (Magnolia, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, Step Brothers).
Particular highlights are part 3, with Cera, and part 4, with John C Reilly.
After the John Krasinski segment, he joined her on stage for a duet. Not sure if this was a one-off at the LA gig or if this happened throughout the tour, but here’s the video:
And here is the is the 2007 Christmas film, in which Aimee tries to convince various celebrities to appear at her gig.
