Just in time for the holidays, Funny or Die has released another video in their (dare we say epic?) Drunk History series. This Christmas-themed episode of the tipsy video series stars Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes, and Jim Carrey as Santa Claus as well as Allen McLeod as the guy getting sauced on the couch.

The premise of the episodes is simple: Someone gets really wasted and tries to recite facts from history. The holiday-inspired twist is that today’s participant drank half a bottle of whiskey before trying to recite the Christmas classic “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” As he recites the famous words, Gosling, Mendes and Carrey pantomime the poem. We would tell you more, but really, who cares? You know you’ll watch Ryan Gosling in anything. (Can’t see the clip above? Head to Funny or Die.)
