The Night Santa Went Crazy Song by Weird Al Yankovic in Animation form

Without a doubt, the greatest Christmas song ever written.
christmas at ground zero is better.
+robokill387 Well I can agree that it's good for the holidays. But, I just love this song more. And if I were to go out caroling, I'd sing this.

Happy Holidays, folks!
This is the first song I ever had on my MP3 player, also the first music device I've ever owned, it's still in my safe.

Since it's only a week until Christmas, its time for some music to put us in the mood. Weird Al Yankovic - The Night Santa Went Crazy:
Mulder and Scully at 1:58 just saying.
Well no shit genious!
Kinda looks like Scully, but I don't see much resemblance to Mulder. But then again, I always paid more attention to Scully then I did Mulder.
Was this for the parents to explain to their kids that there is now no longer a Santa Clause? 
I think it was just to be funny. Weird Al, if I am not mistaken, is Jewish, so I'm not sure how much he thought about Santa Claus
OMG!! Listened to this like 6 years ago!! Just saw it again!! Brings back so many memories before I moved...
Venison sausage is good.  I wonder if this stuff will make you fly.
"Rein Beer gives you wings."
On my brother's cd it goes "Yes Virginia, now Santa Claus is dead. Some guy from the swat team put a bullet in his head"
+Jexias O'Meara "I guess they won't have the fat guy to kick around anymore"
Weird Al Yankovic - Ruining childhoods one song at a time 
+hamza turabi No......I really don't want to ask....but, why?
+hamza turabi It's Tradition, that means it's okay.
This one and 'Christmas is Creepy' are my favorite Xmas songs.
Yes, Virginia, now Santa Claus is dead. Some guy from the SWAT team shot a bullet through his head. Hey, little friend now, see his brains on the floor? Guess we won't have The Fat Guy to kick around anymore!
But now there's no more presents For the children's enjoyment And the elves gotta stand in line And file for unemployment
I prefer the version where Santa was killed by a SWAT sniper.
The extra gory version? I have that on my iPod.
This sounds like a mix of Soul Asylum's "Black Gold" and Ozzy's "Mama I'm Coming Home" - a mashup, as it were. 
Lol... I sang this at my schools winter talent show!!! I got an encore :)
All this holiday stress finally drove Santa crazy.
Mulder and Scully!! <3
Well, uh.... on that note, Happy Holidays everybody! Now excuse me while I go install some high-tech security stuff near my chimney. You know... just in case HE comes around ._.
Between the Nutcracker suite being played on a glass harp, Chris Cornell singing Ave Maria, and this, my YouTube mix for Christmas is shaping up to be a fairly diverse list of songs. I've got the in-laws over for Christmas this year - wonder how they'll feel about this one.
Is it me or does the female FBI agent look like the Avengers version of Black Widow? 
Mr Enter brought me here xD
What song is this a parody of?
+Ilya S I haven't even heard of that song.
+JoshuaDDales Its off of "Grave Dancers Union" - the same album that produced "Runaway Train", their biggest hit back in 91 or so. 
And this just made my Xmas Eve; for the first time in years, I'm actually happy during the holidays...
At the 0:24 is that a Lemming?
"It's time to eat cookies and fuck shit up. And I'm all out of cookies"-Santa
Did anyone else catch the X-Files reference? It's a very old show but I love it.
I think EVERYONE caught it.
Yep. I saw it. I used to love that show.
ok lets be honest here not so saintly nick did not have it so rough he sat on his big fat ass for the hole year while the elves made the toys for free and when it was time for Christmas he had a number of rain deer drag his fat ass all around the world while he sat in his big comfy slay only getting out to put some presents under a tree, and while he was sitting around writing his list, he was spying on everyone in the world like some old perverted peeping tom watching to see if you were doing anything naughty. Do you honestly believe he never checked went on in our bedrooms or peeped in on someone in the shower or while they were getting changed, personally I think he should be on top of his own naughty list and that is before he killed all the rain deer and elves.
Well think of the stress of his job. I think he is entitled to a breakdown every once in a while lol
That is a fucking shit! How could you upload this? Santa should cut off your penis!
Stimmp. Das sowos bleds in der Lage is das as si auf YT aumölt.
by the way Santa's not real and if he was he would be put away for inappropriately touching the elves and breaking child labor laws
My favorite Christmas song ever!
Probably my favorite wierd al song next to you're pitiful and the saga begins
Almost exact same beginning as "Mama, I'm coming home" by Ozzy Osbourne.
This is a animation ripped from Newgrounds ....
I miss the old version when Santa got his brains blown out by a guy on the swat team :(
That version of Santa should be compared to Pumpers from Breadwinners
What if a little baby saw this! It would scare them or make them cry or sometihing
why would a little baby be logged onto Youtube?? 
That;s what parental supervision is for & if you are letting a baby watch Youtube without some kind of supervision that's bad parenting.
It was suprisingly dark for a Weird Al Song but then again i laughed cause it was a Dark and Funny song to me. 
Wow, it only took around 2000 years to for him to lose it! LOL
I always find joy and humor in this song. Santa's gone psycho! XD
Still my favourite Weird Al song.
haha i put this in my mothers songs for chistmas party the people started luaghing there butts off and she skiped it lol
Who came here from Mr. Enter's Animated Atrocity
And he smiled at the elves with a twinkle in his eyes merry christmas to all now your all gonna die the night santa went crazy the night saint nick when insane realized he was getting a raw something finally must of snapped in his brain
As much as I like this song, Christmas at Ground Zero is better.
Santa has an pump-action double-barreled shotgun.
Weird Al Yankovic used to be cool before he took fashion & hair tips from Alanis Morissette
This is good, but the "christmas at ground zero" is better.
This sounds like Black Gold by Soul Asylum

Take a look at this video on YouTube:

Why Santa WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?
whats the original song he made this from?
This is still a brilliant festive choon! :)
anyone wondering what this song is based on: Black and Gold by Soul Asylum at least it sounds pretty DAMN close to me
The world is a better place with weird Al in it.
Dear Nick, I understand. E. B.
Confirmed : Santa is a Gunzerker !!!
Merry Christmas  All 
my question is, since the modern santa for north america is on the canadian side, why is the national guard and the FBI there? shouldn't it be the canadian armed forces?
HE WAS MEAN TO THHE REINDEER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
my favourite christmas carol
Someone prescribed Statin drugs to Santa.

merry x mas and I hate Thaddeus collett. leave me along with your perverted dating sites
So you know in The Biggest Loser season 13? There was a guy named Roy who looked like Santa. Well, that's my step-dad, I think it's safe to say this song is pretty accurate... 
What does that have to do with anything? Are you saying "that guy" Roy is alcoholic and murderous? That's all I got out of what you said.
At least Blizzen and Donner survived.
There is also the "Extra Gory" which has a different third verse (but was not included on the album, it's on the B-side to Amish Paradise and on the compilation The Essential "Weird Al" Yankovic)... Yes Virginia, Now Santa Claus is dead Some guy from the SWAT team blew a hole through his head Yes little friend now, that's his brains on the floor, I guess they won't have the fat guy to kick around any more But now there's no more presents for children's enjoyment And the Elves gotta stand in line and file for unemployment And they say Mrs. Claus, she's on the phone every night With her lawyer negotiating the movie rights
Odd and hilarious.  Although I must say, Weird Al said Santa had a rifle, and when he point it at the camera at 0:55, the gun he had magically morphed into a double barrel shotgun.
haha  dont let little kids watch this u will crush there dreams
Hey, this isn't the extra-gory version!
Not one of my favourites.
this is junk and sad HOW COULD U WIERD AL ps ur are a good singer and ur awesome but this is a fail to me

Weird Al Yankovic - The Night Santa Went Crazy:
Santa had a shotgun, not a rifle.
Myron Metanchuk Shared on Google+ · 2 months ago
now perhaps i am mistaken it would not be the first time but i could of sworn there was a version of this song where it said well now santa clause is dead some guy from the swat team shot a hole in his head sort of a different version of the same parody.
Yes, it's a different version that Al released called 'The Night Santa Went Crazy (Extra Gory version)', in which Santa was killed by a member of the SWAT team and the elves went unemployed.

funny as shit i mean not funny
Well this could explain Xmas in futerama ;)
what is this a parody of
+Brian Haslip Actually i think its Darude - Sandstorm
Looks like it's a mix of a few, including Black Gold. From Wiki: "The Night Santa Went Crazy" is an original song by "Weird Al" Yankovic. The darkly humorous Christmas song is performed as a style parody of "Black Gold" by Soul Asylum, with melodic references to "Mama I'm Comin' Home" by Ozzy Osbourne and "I Believe in Father Christmas" by Greg Lake. It is the twelfth and final track on the album Bad Hair Day.
