Throwback Thursday: NSync ‘Merry Christmas Happy Holidays’ [VIDEO]
‘Merry Christmas Happy Holidays’ is the first and only single from ’N Sync’s second studio album, ‘Home for Christmas’. (Which I still own and play every year.)
The song charted at #37 on the Top 40 Mainstream chart.
The video’s premise is that Santa has become sick on Christmas Eve. Gary Coleman, the head elf, summons ‘N Sync to take over. The boys deliver toys, presents, and good cheer to the world. The video debuted on TRL December 14, 1998 and quickly became a staple.
I personally love the reference to ‘Diff’rent Strokes‘ when Coleman tells ‘N Sync to deliver the presents, they say, “Whatchu talkin’ about, Gary?”
What could be better to celebrate Christmas than baggy late 90′s fashion, Gary Coleman in green pleather, and Justin Timberlake during his bleach blond ramen noodle hair days? Nothing!
