A video of two halves. The first two minutes are filled with Christmas cheer and the final minute is complete mayhem, with death, explosions and general carnage!
I always had a soft spot for this video - it appealed to my sense of humour, but there were specific faults that bothered me. It seemed to take far too long before the carnage started (it should have begun a minute beforehand) and the video resolution was appallingly low with huge pixellation and blurriness due to high compression and the use of downloaded preview clips from 'The Next Doctor' which hadn't even aired yet.
It was eventually muted by YouTube for use of the Shakin' Stevens track. When it disappeared I always imagined I would eventually remake it!
