Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.

"The Other Christmas Shoes" by Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair (Santino Fontana and Jessica Fontana)

Ulterior Motives: No, no, no - this is not the tear jerker "Christmas Shoes" you're thinking of, put those tissues away. These are "The Other Christmas Shoes" which are so darkly comic you won't help but chuckle. Composers Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair who brought theatre audiences the murder mystery musical comedy Murder For Two collaborated with the multi-talented musical theatre triple threats and we can say now comedy duo Santino and Jessica Fontana on this new holiday musical short just in time to bring some levity to this bonkers year and holiday season. We've seen Santino disappear into a number of roles but this Christmas caroling cowboy is a new one! Cheers to Jessica's "wide-eyed" earnest kiddo wanting to surprise mom with some sneaks for the holiday. Jessica and Santino directed, filmed and edited this short too so quadruple threats! Happy Holidays!

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: These Kellen Blair lyrics - they weren't kidding on this being a darkly comic musical short! Joe Kinosian really sets the tug at your heartstrings tone too with this country tune. Our ultimate moment though is the line 1:09 - 1:14. We won't spoil the laughs so go ahead and push play!
