This year at Major Tom’s Great White North headquarters, they decided to forego gifts, giving money to charity instead. But, they still wanted to spread the holiday cheer to their friends, families, followers, and fans, so they created a tribute to a Canadian Christmas Classic.
Great White North is a Canadian recurring SCTV sketch, which was featured by Bob and Doug McKenzie in 1981. Major Tom performed a parody by creating a new stage copying the one in Great White North. Even the ornaments in the tree are chosen to represent the time when the show was actually set in.
They wrote new lyrics on the music of “The 12 Days of Christmas”. On the first day of Christmas in the song, they refer to a Canadian beer brand which was popular in 80s. On the second day, you will see a box of Turtlenecks which is very Canadian also to eat during Christmas. Major Tom explains the backstage of each day on their blog.
Warning before watching the video: you may feel very nostalgic and Canadian!
