Video: Aleksandar Kolarov gives intensely bleak spoken-word recital of 'Jingle Bells'

Posted by Chris Wright

As part of Man City's 'Christmas Crackers' (essentially a Youtube-based advent calendar) the club had Aleksandar Kolarov perform 'Jingle Bells' for the fans.

They probably expected the Serb to just giggle and warble his way through the carol, but what they got was a gravely intense, harrowingly bleak piece of performance art -- with Kolarov turning the carol into an intense spoken-word monologue.

Bravo! Kolarov captures the true essence of Christmas -- a shriveled, rotten heart slowly decaying within the bloated carcass of Western excess. Bravo!
