On Christmas Day, it was guaranteed that if snow did fall in the near future, NOBODY will set foot from their houses and play in the snow. Those Joker-like Snowmen who do worse smiles than Sheldon (and that’s saying something) really were scary.
But scary snowmen have been around for a long time…on Top of the Pops; the Flying Pickets created an Xmas No.1 hit in 1983 with an al capella cover of Yazoo’s Only You. But in one memorable performance, they dressed as snowmen. The video is below (keep an eye on the snowman with the black lipstick waggling a pipe in his mouth. Yes. You heard me):
If you want something even more scary, look up The Snowmen’s “Hokey Cokey” on Youtube; THAT is one scary snowman song!
Live long and prosper!
