David Bowie and Bing Crosby – The Little Drummer Boy : Viral Video

In the spirit of the Christmas season it is our privilege to bring you one of history’s most impressive (and forgotten) duets.

It signifies the pairing of two generations, with Bing Crosby and David Bowie joining forces on the Christmas Classic The Little Drummer Boy.

Based on a flimsy pretext, (which only makes the video more enjoyable) David Bowie winds up at Bing Crosby’s heavily decorated house whereupon they discuss their varying music tastes, which prompts them to take on the much loved classic.

Watch Out For

Once again, the ‘admirable’ back-story to David Bowie actually winding up at Bing Crosby’s house is what gives this video it’s comical edge. Other than that, enjoy this delightful and poorly scripted piece of musical history for what it is.

DAVID BOWIE and BING CROSBY

Not to be outdone for iconic Christmas moments, Will Ferrell and John C Riley teamed up for an (almost) exact re-enactment of this now world famous scene (which was voted in the Top 20 most memorable moments of 20th Century TV).
