Holiday tips from Bob and Doug

Good Day, eh. Some of my fondest childhood memories of Christmas involve driving around in my dad’s car listening to the Bob and Doug McKenzie Christmas album. I had the whole thing memorized by junior high and later decided that enjoying a regimen of beers, smokes, backbacon and toques was the life for me. Here’s a YouTube from SCTV that more or less condenses Side A of the Christmas Album into a 2 minute skit.

BTW…we have the dicks at the CRTC to thank for Bob and Doug. Fearing that SCTV was going the way of American comedy variety shows like SNL, our federal Can Con watchdogs forced producers to include at least one segment that represented Canadian culture. The result was these two hosers, portrayed by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas. Nice one, eh.
