166: This Christmas Isn't Just Gonna Be Great, It's Gonna Be Legendary. (A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy)

Happy Monday, Christmas fanatics! We hope y'all enjoyed your long Fourth of July weekend! This week, for the second week in a row, the elves cover a Christmas Variety special - this time, 2018's NBC-produced, A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy, starring - you guessed it! - John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. While all three hosts are a fan of the musician and his model wife, they once again find themselves disliking this holiday variety special, causing them to wonder - why don't they work anymore in the modern day? In addition, they discuss the casting of Jason Momoa in the live-action remake of the Rankin/Bass classic, Frosty the Snowman; Anthony explains the concept of the British television show, Naked Attraction, to Thom and Julia and explains his disdain for Matt Damon; Thom and Julia discuss the Sarahan dust clouds covering the U.S.; and the three hosts answer a question posed by President Hotdog on Reddit - if they could pick any celebrity to host a variety-type special for any holiday, which celebrity would they pick and which holiday would they do it for? They talk about all of this, and much, much, more. So settle in with your favorite holiday beverage, blast that air-conditioning, and enjoy this fun-filled episode!
