AMAZINGPHIL: Well, no, but I had to get their attention somehow DANISNOTONFIRE: Well, worked for me We are DanIsNotOnFire and AmazingPhil from “The Super Amazing Project.” Yay AMAZINGPHIL: Yay And as Christmas is on the way, one of my favorite things about Christmas is ugly jumpers DANISNOTONFIRE: Definitely AMAZINGPHIL: Or sweaters, if you’re an American DANISNOTONFIRE: That’s what we’s going to be talking about today AMAZINGPHIL: Yeah, but the biggest thing with me is, are they ugly? Or are they actually a form of art? DANISNOTONFIRE: I think there’s a certain charm to ugly sweaters But there are some that, in my opinion, just cross the line So we have nosedived into one of our favorite blogs, “[BLEEP] Yeah, Ugly Sweaters.” And we have brought you some of the best slash worst ever things AMAZINGPHIL: But wait, Dan Something’s missing [FINGERS SNAPPING] AMAZINGPHIL: That’s better DANISNOTONFIRE: And we are dressed appropriately AMAZINGPHIL: Yeah OK, let’s get going DANISNOTONFIRE: Ooh, god AMAZINGPHIL: Is that some kind of Sonic the Hedgehog mixed with Felix the Cat? DANISNOTONFIRE: I– no, no Just no AMAZINGPHIL: I want it DANISNOTONFIRE: Oh, ho ho Yes AMAZINGPHIL: I need it DANISNOTONFIRE: Yes, Tintin jumper Yes Seal of approval AMAZINGPHIL: Anything with Tintin on is acceptable in my mind DANISNOTONFIRE: Ugly as hell, but good Oh, god I can’t decide AMAZINGPHIL: They’re staring into my soul DANISNOTONFIRE: That– yeah, that’s absolutely [BLEEP] terrifying AMAZINGPHIL: Yep DANISNOTONFIRE: But I think I like it AMAZINGPHIL: I don’t like that the guy wearing it has got his pretentious shirt done up to the top DANISNOTONFIRE: Raw fashion No, if you’re wearing that, then don’t even try to look cool AMAZINGPHIL: No DANISNOTONFIRE: Ooph, jesus AMAZINGPHIL: Wow DANISNOTONFIRE: Oh, my god My nightmares aren’t as scary as that AMAZINGPHIL: If you open a bottle to another dimension, that is the first thing you see DANISNOTONFIRE: That beyond LSD-induced nightmares That is just a whole other– No Burn it Burn it AMAZINGPHIL: That’s a good one DANISNOTONFIRE: OK, I kind of like that one Monstrous That’s the sort of thing that’s probably not done ironically or in a hipster-y way That is just a real thing AMAZINGPHIL: Whoever knitted that zebra needs to not knit zebras again DANISNOTONFIRE: Eew! AMAZINGPHIL: Ugh! DANISNOTONFIRE: No, I think it’s supposed to be moon walking Michael Jackson AMAZINGPHIL: That’s terrible DANISNOTONFIRE: But that just reminds me of some kind of weird Word Art You know when you go into Microsoft Word and do Word Art, and then you get to like the depths of Word Art, when you’re just looking at weird things that someone made in the ’90s That’s that, and I don’t like it AMAZINGPHIL: I don’t like it Cats! DANISNOTONFIRE: Yes! AMAZINGPHIL: Yeah, I’d wear that DANISNOTONFIRE: Yes! Yes! Every yes AMAZINGPHIL: Ugh DANISNOTONFIRE: Oh, blegh! Blegh! AMAZINGPHIL: He’s a cool dude DANISNOTONFIRE: Oh, my frick Oh, that is– oh, my god That is from a time period where that was acceptable AMAZINGPHIL: It looks like a mistake I have finally one that I just found DANISNOTONFIRE: OK Oh, god That is the best thing I’ve ever seen AMAZINGPHIL: The ultimate jumper DANISNOTONFIRE: Oh, my god AMAZINGPHIL: I mean– DANISNOTONFIRE: I would kill people for that So, I hope this has been pretty inspirational and conclusive AMAZINGPHIL: So are you excited for the big C? DANISNOTONFIRE: I think that’s cancer, Phil AMAZINGPHIL: Is that? Oh DANISNOTONFIRE: Oh, my god AMAZINGPHIL: What do you mean, cancer? DANISNOTONFIRE: But yes I hope that you have all enjoyed this And we will be wearing our sweaters on Christmas Day, I can imagine AMAZINGPHIL: And you can actually join us on “The Super Amazing Project” on the 24th, which is Christmas Eve DANISNOTONFIRE: For a super exciting Christmas episode So make sure y’all check that out Back to you guys in the studio AMAZINGPHIL: Bye BETH HOYT: Thanks, Dan and Phil I’m joined now by Nate NATE: Hey, Beth BETH HOYT: Hi, Nate NATE: Oh, man I just want to say, though, I– just watching that video of Dan and Phil– one, I would totally be into that moonwalk sweater BETH HOYT: Yeah, that one’s cool NATE: Yeah, although it seemed like it might be a zip-up, which would be a bit of a deal breaker BETH HOYT: That’s a deal breaker for you? NATE: I think– BETH HOYT: It’s easier NATE: That’s the deal breaker? Mmm, zip-up sweaters are weird if it’s not, like, a hoodie BETH HOYT: It has a man moonwalking on it It’s like– NATE: That’s true So again, I don’t know why they hate it And two, that “Star Wars” one I just realized, I’m going to this thing this weekend where, like, we basically watch the entirety of the “Star Wars” holiday special without interruption And it’s like really awful And that seems like the perfect awful attire for it So I wish I could get it BETH HOYT: Yeah, you need that NATE: Oh, my gosh BETH HOYT: Also, I love that they call them jumpers NATE: Yeah, that’s– BETH HOYT: And if– what if, like, we, the way we think of

jumpers, which is like the jumpsuit, like the– the overalls If you had, like, bad jumpers, really, that’d be like the worst article of clothing NATE: Oh, my god Yeah BETH HOYT: If there’s like a bad-patterned jumper NATE: It would be atrocious BETH HOYT: I want that Also, I think I wore that one with the purple flowers in middle school Definitely owned that It was like kind of a mock turtleneck sweater It was the worst NATE: Was that yours? You get that new? BETH HOYT: Maybe that was like my– my actual picture of mine I made the video! That’s great Bad fashion in the Midwest Also, during their video, I realized that we’re not even properly dressed for our show– NATE: No, not at all BETH HOYT: –which is so embarrassing Nate and I both helped each other make a holiday sweater for the party on the show today We filmed it We put them on our channels yesterday It was fun, right, Nate? NATE: Yeah, it was great, except it was a little scary BETH HOYT: Why? We learned that we have different tactics NATE: Beth is dangerous in the craft zones BETH HOYT: Listen, there’s sharp scissor There’s extremely hot glue There’s the rapid pace of inspiration It’s not a DIY if someone doesn’t gets hurt NATE: That’s not a phrase BETH HOYT: Well, luckily no one got really hurt during my sweater-making And you can see the full version where I give Nate an acting lesson on “Beth In Show.” But let’s get some real, like, Project Runway behind-the-scenes looks at my sweater [MUSIC PLAYING] BETH HOYT: Hello! We’re making a holiday sweater And Nate is here This is Nate You might recognize him from “My Damn Channel Live”– NATE: Hi BETH HOYT: –or his vlog, “OkayNate.” NATE: Mmm hmm BETH HOYT: Let me see I’m just gonna– NATE: Oh, but aren’t you wearing the sweater?

It looks pretty good BETH HOYT: It’s boxy Absolutely not NATE: Mmm, oh BETH HOYT: So we’re just going to start gluing these on– NATE: Dasher BETH HOYT: Yup, there you go NATE: Um, Dancer Prancer There was a movie about Prancer, right? [MUSIC PLAYING] NATE: They made me watch it in, like, elementary school They would put it on BETH HOYT: Oh, to torture you? Nate, have you ever recycled a, um, a gift? NATE: Uh, I got a “How To Kazoo” book once [MUSIC PLAYING] NATE: I don’t know if I re-gifted it so much as just gave it to someone BETH HOYT: That’s like the perfect white elephant gift NATE: What have you ever gotten people for white elephant? BETH HOYT: Well, last night I went to a white elephant party and I got– I– I bought a vibrator [MUSIC PLAYING] BETH HOYT: And it was a very popular gift Nate, what’s in that coffee cup?

NATE: You’ll definitely get noticed BETH HOYT: You look fabulous NATE: Do you need to carry around an extension cord with you for this to work? BETH HOYT: Ooph I’m hot NATE: You’re hot? BETH HOYT: That’s best He’s overheated He’s overheated [MUSIC PLAYING] BETH HOYT: Wow And here she is, you guys I think I lost a few of the pop corns in the transfer But she’s still pretty NATE: It’s also crisscrossing a little bit, but– BETH HOYT: OK, there we go NATE: Yeah BETH HOYT: Wa-ya-yay-ang NATE: It’s so pretty and full of holiday spirit BETH HOYT: It sure is Nate, let’s talk about your sweater NATE: Oh, yeah So I’ve never actually decorated an ugly holiday sweater, or a regular holiday sweater, or really decorated a Christmas tree, because my mom kind of takes over that stuff And so I decided to do a Christmas tree sweater BETH HOYT: OK, Nate NATE: Yeah BETH HOYT: Let’s– I mean, no, let’s watch “OkayNate.” NATE: Sure [MUSIC PLAYING] NATE: Hey, guys This is Nate And Beth is here with me today BETH HOYT: Hello!

NATE: Beth is so radiating Christmas cheer– BETH HOYT: It’s true NATE: –that she is going to help me do this BETH HOYT: I’m an expert Have you used one of these before? NATE: Uh, no BETH HOYT: This is going to be fun NATE: But since I’ve never decorated a Christmas before, either, I thought we could do two-in-one So this will be a Christmas tree sweater BETH HOYT: That’s a great idea NATE: This seems, like, kind of tree-like, right? BETH HOYT: Yeah, we’ll put it right over the lamp NATE: Yeah It just looks like some sort of creepy Muppet BETH HOYT: Or it looks like a– like a saggy-boobed grandma

A ’50s style bra NATE: This is a classy sweater These ornaments are definitely a great start BETH HOYT: Great start NATE: Get them on here This won’t be a nipple when we’re done We always do Christmas at my aunt’s house And she has like a 10-foot tall tree Do you go anywhere, or do you usually stay at your parents’ place when you do Christmas? BETH HOYT: Go to my parents My family’s kind of spread out, so we don’t have, like, the drive over to my aunt’s house It’s like– So we stay at my house So we’ve never had a 10-foot tree That’s awesome NATE: Yeah And also, my aunt lives like 14 houses down from my mom and dad’s So it’s like, if you get fed up with the family, you can just leave But we never do BETH HOYT: Because you don’t get fed up? Or because it’s rude? NATE: My cousin has now started a tradition where she has a pickle ornament And she hides it somewhere in the tree And then we have to go find it And every year it’s like trying to get the best time to find this pickle I’m going to start my own tradition and just move it around every year BETH HOYT: Move the pickle around on your sweater? NATE: Yes! BETH HOYT: That’s great NATE: Are you kidding me? BETH HOYT: The same pickle? NATE: I don’t know Do pickles last forever? I mean, they’re pickled This is now my family You have to know the answer to this I bet you $5 on the table BETH HOYT: I can’t handle the pressure NATE: Welcome to my Christmas! Welcome to my Christmas! Where do we hide it, then? Armpit? BETH HOYT: Hide it in the armpit, hide it in the armpit NATE: Armpit pickle! OK, that’s great BETH HOYT: You’re like, smell my armpit This is essential NATE: Do you know what this– is there like a meaning behind this or is this just something cool to put on a tree? BETH HOYT: Tradition began by people being like, we need snacks closer to the tree And then they, um– they had– she was sewing so she had a needle and thread And she had a pop– bowl of popcorn And the– her name is Betsy Ross And she um– she started it And she– NATE: The same one BETH HOYT: And theretofore, it is a tradition NATE: This is like putting an American flag on my sweater, now BETH HOYT: Well, don’t tell anyone NATE: OK BETH HOYT: It’s a– it’s a– NATE: I will keep it a secret You guys keep it a secret, too Finishing touches, now Christmas lights BETH HOYT: So essential [GASP] NATE: Yes!

You’re hilarious CHRIS GETHARD: Thank you BETH HOYT: Here’s another comment from YouTube This is from maryder83 “Chris, did you ever imagine that you’d have children by this point? Christmas would be way different.” CHRIS GETHARD: Yeah, I tell you, I think about how I should have kids almost all the time I recently– was in– I was– I dated a girl for eight years, and we broke up this summer, because I– because I woke up one day, and I was like, man, I thought I’d have kids by now I’m 32 My dad had two kids and owned a home when he was 27 And I compare him– I compare myself to him all the time BETH HOYT: Don’t do that CHRIS GETHARD: And it doesn’t work out in my favor ever And just last night, I was at a bar with a friend of mine who was like showing me pictures of his kids and telling me that his kid has like gotten into dance classes

and just learned how to read And I started crying in the bar, because I was like, man, I wish I had that life But I just don’t know if that’s going to work out for me anymore Like, I might be just like a little too old to find that And plus I’m a little scared that I’ll pass on my skeletal deformities and depression issues to a child BETH HOYT: Well, so those are– those are– it’s a positive ending, then, that you know, you’re realizing that– CHRIS GETHARD: That the child– I– I– I may choose to not make a child exist because it would resemble me BETH HOYT: Well, that’s ridiculous We could only be so lucky to have another Chris Gethard But also, that was an incredibly just truthful answer CHRIS GETHARD: Thank you BETH HOYT: That was– CHRIS GETHARD: I keep– I’ll keep it real truthful BETH HOYT: That’s also a lot think — a lot of, I think, New York comics and performers think that way about children CHRIS GETHARD: About themselves? BETH HOYT: Yeah, it’s too late I– Should I do this? CHRIS GETHARD: Like I’m full of self-loathing That makes me feel like I don’t want something to share half my DNA BETH HOYT: But, you know, the good news is, like, if– say, for you show tonight, you’d have to get a baby sitter And they are so expensive in New York CHRIS GETHARD: Yeah So that’s good BETH HOYT: Yup CHRIS GETHARD: That’s a good– BETH HOYT: Saving cash! CHRIS GETHARD: Yeah, that’s– there’s– there’s the– there’s the upside BETH HOYT: You can buy another slice of pizza CHRIS GETHARD: Silver lining, they call that BETH HOYT: Yup The next time you drop your pizza, I’d be like, I can buy another slice because I don’t have to have a baby sitter CHRIS GETHARD: Yeah Yeah BETH HOYT: All right Here’s a comment CHRIS GETHARD: And I don’t have to share it with some dumb baby BETH HOYT: Who probably can’t even chew anyway CHRIS GETHARD: I don’t have to share my pizza with some dumb baby that can’t even talk or drive a car BETH HOYT: Yeah Right This is Danny Behar He wants to know, “will the human fish be on the show tonight?” CHRIS GETHARD: I don’t know, because our new studio is up in Harlem We just got our studio for The Chris Gethard Show under renovation in Spanish Harlem, which I hear is called SpaHa That’s what I hear Nate tells us– Nate has said, it– call it SpaHa That’s the only acceptable name to call it Human fish says that’s kind of a far journey for him BETH HOYT: Does he know it’s called SpaHa? That might make it seem like, if you just said, you, the show– you? Yo, the show’s like relocated to SpaHa Before you tell him what it is, be like, are you locked in– are you locked in? He might be like, sure CHRIS GETHARD: I should have done that, but I think the cat’s out of the bag on this one BETH HOYT: Yeah That’s too bad CHRIS GETHARD: Yeah BETH HOYT: Are your– are your- yeah So what’s like one of the best guests you’ve had on your show?

BETH HOYT: Ooh CHRIS GETHARD: Huffy’s got white heat now That was the ad campaign And I was so happy And then– BETH HOYT: Ed Huffy better know that song CHRIS GETHARD: We put it in my garage for the winter, and when it warmed up in the spring, someone had broken into the garage and stolen the bike BETH HOYT: But so– but– but you’re saying that when you got that bike that, that was a good memory So it wasn’t until the summer that were unhappy, that you realized– NATE: Did you get to ride it more than once?

Without you? They don’t want you to– CHRIS GETHARD: Here’s what I need Yeah How’s that? No, I think I’ll go see “Django Unchained” by myself BETH HOYT: Oh, good CHRIS GETHARD: I’m up for that BETH HOYT: Do you get movie snacks? CHRIS GETHARD: Do I get movie snacks? Of course I did One time, I ate popcorn that I found on the floor I ate garbage in a movie theater BETH HOYT: But you wouldn’t eat a pizza that you bought? Oh, I guess the sidewalk versus movie theater floor? CHRIS GETHARD: I tried to go sideways No, I was 19 and I was working in the movie theater so I could see movies for free but they wouldn’t give you snacks for free And I was seeing “The Phantom Menace” for the 13th time, because I could see movies for free And it was horrible And I was the only one in the theater And I found a half-eaten bag of popcorn on the ground And I picked it up and ate it, and started crying while watching “The Phantom Menace.” Because when you think about that, that’s someone– that’s someone else’s trash that they threw on the floor And, like, who knows whose hand was– and somebody was sticking their hand in there That person could have been, like– just like a chronic masturbator That person could have been someone whose, like, job involved, like, like handling fish products BETH HOYT: Yeah CHRIS GETHARD: I don’t know why that was my second example BETH HOYT: You could’ve– well, that’s because it’s disgusting– that’d be gross NATE: We got a comments BETH HOYT: We have a comment?

CHRIS GETHARD: C’mon, man NATE: His worst song, yeah CHRIS GETHARD: Come on BETH HOYT: Chris, how do you feel about Celine Dion’s “O Holy Night?” CHRIS GETHARD: “O Holy Night?” BETH HOYT: Because it’ll give you goosebumps CHRIS GETHARD: “O Holy”– I don’t know if I’ve caught that one? BETH HOYT: It’s a really good one You should listen to that It might make you feel
