So, I stand corrected; I told you all that the Ghost B.C. parody song “Hail Santa” was the best X-mas parody of the year. I was wrong!
I just stumbled across this amazing video by Sock Puppet Parody called “Immortal Christmas.” This one really had me busting up. The video is a funny take on the infamous Norwegian black metal band Immortal and their frost-bound homages to the dark lord. Once again, the praises of Satan are replaced by ones for Santa and hilarity ensues. I have to think that Immortal frontman Abbath would approve of this, as he seems to have a very tongue-in-cheek sense of humor about his band and their schtick. Anyway, check it out for yourself here below and let us know what you think.
Immortal come from (where else?) the hotbed of black metal, Bergen, Norway, and is one of the most iconic and polarizing bands in the genre. They are revered by many as one of the first bands to emerge in the second wave of black metal and reviled by others who see them as “the KISS of black metal,” perhaps due to the fact that the band has proven to be one of the most commercially successful black metal outfits ever and can often be seen playing the main stages of major European festivals.
Love them or hate them, there is no denying that black metal as we know it today might be a very different animal if not for the contributions of Immortal. Here, from their iconic 1995 album Battles In The North are Immortal with the official video for the song “Blashyrkh (Mighty Ravendark).”
A photograph was recently discovered being sold on eBay. The photo is of a Tennessee man, and it dates back to around the 1860s or 1870s. But the thing about this particular man, is that he looks an awful lot like a one Mr. Nicolas Cage.
So much so that the seller is even using this in his description, claiming the Cage must be some sort of vampire. Now, some have taken the seller to be completely serious in his statements (especially with a Buy It Now price of $1,000,000 set), but as you can see in the Q&A section at the bottom of the page, he’s actually a pretty funny dude and, even though it sounds like a legit 19th century photograph, is likely just having some fun with it (unless, of course, someone actually pays up that kinda coin, in which case he would be a genius).
You can see the image below and read the seller’s description by heading on below now.
