Punk rocker Carly Jamison has released a cover of an old Nat King Cole gem called "The Happiest Christmas Tree".

Despite its edgy punk sound, the song is kind of cute, but the video of a bizarre, animated gingerbread man dancing to the song at famed New York nightclub CBGB's may be the strangest thing you see today.

Jamison says she chose "The Happiest Christmas Tree" because "I wanted to do an angry rock version of it", she says, "but Tres Sasser, my producer, wanted me to do a cover of a Ramones Christmas song. In the end, we were inspired to combine both ideas and do a cover of the Nat King Cole song in the style of The Ramones. We think it worked out really well."

If only the video could say the same thing.
