In an interview with culture writer Steve Burgess of thetyee.ca, I tell the story of how John Waters got involved in our film.
Steve gets it. He writes: “Many factors can make a Christmas hater — choking on Lego, early exposure to the Star Wars Christmas Special, Fox News. But for some it’s the music. Like the third-rate candy that briefly goes mainstream to fill Halloween demand, the likes of Burl Ives and Andy Williams re-emerge to set up camp in your ear canal come the holiday season. Even John and Yoko get tiresome after awhile.”
