Hark! What is that the angels sing of so sweetly? The birth of a tiny child? The arrival of a jolly man in a crimson suit, spreading joy to all the lands? Nay, a Walk Off the Earth holiday special? Even better! Sign me up!
Yes, that’s right, Canadian musical sensation and NMR fave Walk Off the Earth has recorded an hour-long Christmas special called It’s a Wonderful Mic. The movie (as the group calls it) appears to be comprised mostly of music videos liked you would normally find on WotE’s channel, but with an overarching connecting plot.
In anticipation, WotE has released a video used within the movie: a well-known flamenco band (aka WotE dressed up like a flamenco band) performing “Feliz Navidad”all together on a single guitar, the style WotE themselves became famous for using with Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know.”
The special is officially slated for winter 2015 release (it is unclear what platforms it will be available on just yet), but there will be advanced previews on StageIt over the next couple weeks, with the first starting tomorrow at 2pm PST and 5pm PST. It has already aired in Canada on YesTV and will be re-airing on December 25th.
