At first, “The 12 Days of Christmas” sounds like a great romantic tale, with someone giving their true love some trees, a bunch of different birds, plenty of gold rings and more maids-a-milking than anyone could ever need. But then it hits you: who would want all that crap? Who has the space for all that crap?? And what kind of horrible person gives away human beings as gifts???
That’s right, “The 12 Days of Christmas” is actually a horrific tale of obsession from someone who has a totally messed up view of what true love means. To see the disastrous results of someone actually getting those gifts — all 364 of them — check out this brilliant animated short from ad agency Anomaly London that will completely change the way you hear the seasonal favorite.
