A music video with a unique pairing of artists brings the joy of Christmas to listeners worldwide. In this video, Andrea Bocelli is seen collaborating with the Muppets from Sesame Street to sing an interesting version of ‘Jingle Bells.’
Together, they create musical magic with a funny back and forth between Bocelli and the Muppets. The outcome is outstanding from a musical perspective and entertaining from a comedic point of view.
The video starts with the master of ceremonies walking over to a giant sleigh where Andrea stands between the famous Muppets. The Muppets humbly thank everybody for the opportunity to be there and then ask Andrea what they should sing.
Andrea explains that he learned a lovely and beautiful song when he was a child and that they would probably know it too. When he says ‘Jingle Bells,’ the Muppets can’t contain their excitement.
‘Jingle Bells is one of the most commonly sung American songs in the world. It is world-famous, and although some people might not know the words, they can still hum along to the tune.
The song was written by James Lord Pierpont in 1857. The title of the song was ‘The One Horse Open Sleigh’ when it was written. It was never intended to be a Christmas song but became associated with Christmas around the 1860s.
One viewer commented: ‘This shows that there is no type of song Andrea can’t sing. The best part of this song was watching Andrea trying not to laugh.’ This comment proves that the song is perfect for Christmas as it contains both the most famous Christmas jingle and humor from the most famous puppets in the world.
