Goth-rock Santa has heard our prayers...
And for that, we have to thank mash-up mastermind Bill McClintock, who has combined Mariah Carey's holiday megahit "All I Want for Christmas Is You" with its seasonal antithesis, Marilyn Manson.
Tune into the clip below to watch the viral video of Manson's 1996 smash hit "The Beautiful People" combined with Carey's 1994 holiday classic as Manson prowls and growls along. No matter how much we rave about it, it's a seasonal sensation, quickly nearing a million views, that really can only be experienced below rather than explained.
McClintock, who appears to be a school teacher when he isn't making pop-meets-rock videos that take the Internet by storm, joked in the caption of his YouTube post, "I'm gonna have my 6th graders perform it just like for the concert."
You might also take a weird fancy to his other popular mash-ups that have found a surprisingly large supportive Internet fanbase, including his Spice Girls x Slipknot x The Black Crowes "If You Wanna Breath My Sulfur" upload as well as his Judas Priest x Michael Jackson "Billie Jean's Got Another Thing Comin."
So crank up the volume, whip out the holiday eggnog and chant along to this deliciously catchy and strange new Christmas cut.
