Christmas Delightment / 28 December 2013

SBC (SickBitchCrips) are delighted to bring to you their new work ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’.

The Christmas video is a beautiful rendition of the classic ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ first introduced by Judy Garland in 1944, and reminds us of how beautiful and idyllic Christmas is. A time for giving, eating, sharing and feeling trapped by relatives and loved ones. SBC have captured this precious moment in their beautiful camera work and backing vocals that are reminiscent of heavenly fairy like creatures.

SBC have tentatively produced a seductive and hypnotic, relaxing backdrop of Christmas cheer, showcasing two caged Chihuahuas lying comatose, with little snowflakes falling down on their fragile delicate frames.

Overindulgence and eating until you poop is what makes Christmas so special and without those squeaky pigs and our feather duster bird friends, Christmas would be a little disappointing.

SBC would like to make a toast to all the swine’s and birds for sacrificing their lives in huge quantities to make our Christmases a happy feasting period. Lastly we would like to spare a little thought to Jesus and all her followers and pray that one day the spell will be lifted.
