Sufjan Stevens - Merry Christmas infomercial

Dropped by Robert Miller

About a week ago, Sufjan Stevens released his newest box set of Christmas music in a collection called Silver & Gold: Songs for Christmas, Volumes 6–10. The boxed set was already a jam-packed mess of fun—yet non-essential— paraphernalia, such as stickers, temporary tattoos and coloring book pages, but Stevens is on a roll with the weird and nothing’s going to stop him now.

Stevens, along with Jeff Shoop, Deborah Johnson and Rosie Thomas, created a series of seven videos called the “Friendship Slay Ride.” They’re like goofy Saturday Night Live skits, including an infomercial for Silver & Gold, a monster truck rally, an ad for a law office, a Richard Simmons-esque workout video, a fake sitcom and more. It’s completely absurd, but yet again, it’s Stevens’ own twist on the holiday.
