Tracy Morgan’s ‘Night Before Christmas’ Involves a Pimp Named Sugar Plum — VIDEO


Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

On Dasher, on Dancer, on Porkchop, on DJ Downey McFresh… wait, no. That’s not even close to correct. But Tracy Morgan’s recitation of the Christmas poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” takes a few liberties with the original text (published in 1823 by an anonymous author later revealed to be Clement Clarke Moore, though not without its share of contesting theories… hey, didn’t think you were gonna learn anything in a post with a headline about Tracy Morgan and pimps, did ya?!), and they’re kind of infectious.

Last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the host brought on his old Saturday Night Live buddy Morgan to join him in a reading of the classic holiday verse. While Fallon remained reverent to the beloved scripture, Morgan spouted his usual brand of off-color commentary, suggestive of some undiagnosed mental illness, between lines. The 30 Rock star’s tangential subject matter varied from Tempur-Pedic mattresses to the severity of the obesity epidemic. Check out the video below for some nontraditional holiday cheer.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
