“Children roasting on an open fire/Krampus ripping at your throat/Santa Claus is a fat f*cking liar/who’ll bring you socks and underwear/(Shit you’ll never wear)”
So begins drag legend Jackie Beat’s fab new holiday parody of the Nat King Cole’s “The Christmas Song” – The “Menstrual Krampus.” The video, directed by AustinYoung below, marks the pair’s eighth collaboration to date, and probably their most brilliant. Jackie is practically unrecognizable in hair and makeup by Glen Alen, styling by Squeaky Blonde and horns and fingers by Gabe Acero. SO GOOD! Oh, oh, and we can’t forget wowlebrity Calpernia Addams was the mix engineer on the track.
Check out the fun below.
In Central European folklore, Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure described as “half-goat, half-demon”, who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts. Krampus is one of the companions of Saint Nicholas in several regions including Austria, Bavaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Northern Italy including South Tyrol and the Province of Trento, Slovakia, and Slovenia.The origin of the figure is unclear; some folklorists and anthropologists have postulated it as having pre-Christian origins.
