While I have always wondered how the song "Baby, It's Cold Outside" has managed to walk a line between playful holiday spirit and rape culture, I have never stopped to wonder what might happen after the song is over. This past Saturday, Saturday Night Live took the story one step further and dared to imagine that the song's crooning couple actually did the dirty deed. The hilarious result is every frat boy's nightmare:
You may jump to call it womanizing or a contribution to the shallow "hook-up culture" that permeates the millennial social scene, but this role reversal is just downright funny and heartwarming. I hate to admit it, but having spent four years at a large public college, these Christmas bells ring all too true. Ol' Jimmy gets a little more than he bargained for when he takes a page from the average bro's book and fills his lovely lady's ears with tinsel-laden lies. Instead of a spot on the naughty list, he got a stocking stuffed with commitment.
Let Jimmy be a lesson to all you bachelors who are home for the holidays and spending way too much time underneath the mistletoe. If you're singing "All I Want for Christmas Is You" all the way to the bedroom, don't expect to get off so easily after you unwrap the presents.
