Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have added a comedic twist to David Bowie and Bing Crosby's classic Christmas duet.

A video was posted on website Funny Or Die in which the duo do an imitation of Crosby and Bowie's beloved 1977 Christmas special in which they sang Peace On Earth and The Little Drummer Boy.

In their version, Will plays Bowie and John performs as Crosby.

The mimicry is impressive, with almost every line exactly repeated. John fittingly dons a V-neck sweater, and Will sports Bowie's blue blazer and a British accent. The two stay faithfully in character until the end, when they curse at each other and Will knocks over a Christmas tree.
