One of the best holiday traditions every December is to watch the classic "Peace on Earth/Little Drummer" boy duet between Bing Crosby and David Bowie. The wonderfully bizarre duet took place in 1977 on Crobsy's "Merrie Olde Christmas" TV special. Crosby died just a month after filming and the special, his last, aired on CBS a few weeks later.

Today we have a new version of a modern classic courtesy of Funny or Die. Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly filmed a shot-for-shot recreation of the duet as Bowie and Crosby, respectively. It's funny and festive and just about as bizarre as the original. Check it out below!

Extra Tidbit: It's still unclear if Crosby had any idea who Bowie was.
