Andrew W.K. had just wowed our office with several vastly different versions of "Silent Night," including one with a very somber delivery, and we thought to ourselves, "Which one will we use? They're all great!" And then Rodney, the friendliest mailman on the planet, walked in the door. You might remember Rodney from both the Retribution Gospel Choir and Fruit Bats Undercover videos, in which he made brief cameos. But here, on the spur of the moment, we convinced him to join Andrew W.K. for yet another rendition of "Silent Night." You can feel the holiday spirit coursing through the little round room, can't you?
