Community continues to show themselves to be one of the funniest and smartest shows on television as it airs its last episode before it goes on its mid-season hiatus for an indeterminate time. This mid-season finale was a Christmas musical insulting Glee, with one of the best songs being from the incredibly sexy (which they make obvious) and talented Alison Brie (see the above GIF)
Brie’s song is a direct parody of the well known Christmas song, Santa Baby. Santa Baby essentially is a song that sexualizes Christmas as the female singer “sexually” sings to Santa in a sort of baby voice, which Brie perfectly parodies in her song. The song is basically about how her as Jewish girl knows nothing about Christmas but to add insult to injury, with her as the smartest in the group she truly becomes more and more stupid and infant like until all she can do is babble in tune.
The big kicker for me though is how Community seems to always be able to hide references. If you’re a true Community fan, you’ll likely remember one of the other great episodes this season, Remedial Chaos Theory where when “speaking of airport bathrooms, I nailed Eartha Kitt in one” is uttered by Pierce, repeatedly. And of course, who first performed the song Santa Baby? Eartha Kitt. In almost any other show this would be a coincidence but in Community its just another hidden reference.
Enjoy your mind being blown.
