Awkward, fumbling celebrity rap is a very special category of Freaky Friday, and it's been a while since we featured one (Mr. T's "Treat Your Mother Right," August 28). That's why we're extra excited to bring you today's offering, which has the added bonus of being seasonal. How awesome is that? It's a rapped version of the "Night before Christmas" by noted hip-hop superstar Kathie Lee Gifford, and it is every bit as fucked up and stupid as you'd think it would be. Kathie Lee has a Christmas album available (pictured). Wonder if this made the cut?
