Christmas just makes you all warm and bubbly, doesn’t it? Or should I say warm and Bublé? After all, we’re going to get to enjoy a new holiday special this year, A Michael Bublé Christmas. On Dec. 6 (at 8 p.m. ET), the crooner is headlining his first Christmas special on NBC, and will welcome several familiar faces to help him sing classics like “White Christmas” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Some famous folks along for the (sleigh) ride: Justin Bieber, Oscar the Grouch, and Kellie Pickler, among others.
But Bublé’s not just relying on his vocals to sell the special — he’s also going to be showcasing his comedy chops. The singer is teaming with The Office star Ed Helms in a series of digital shorts set during a 1974 Christmas special that went awry. (Holy Movember, check out that ‘stache!) After the jump, see one of those shorts, exclusively on EW. It’s a good antidote for those of us going though Hamm and Bublé withdrawal.
