Video: Aleksandar Kolarov’s spoken-word version of Jingle Bells won’t get you in the Christmas spirit

Because we’re in December it’s now perfectly acceptable to get caught up in the Christmas spirit. If you’re looking for inspiration, don’t watch this.

In the run-up to the festive season, Manchester City have decided to embrace the Christmas spirit by releasing Christmassy-themed videos featuring their players.

The first one involved Mario Balotelli and some crackers – Christmas, not fire, thank God – while the latest offering involves Serbian defender Aleksandar Kolarov regale viewers with his own, unique spoken-word version of ‘Jingle Bells’.

Get the right voice and the right song and spoken-word versions of classics can work a treat – Sean Connery’s version of The Beatles’ ‘In My Life’ was a commendable effort – but Kolarov’s does not belong in that category.

In fact, it’s just a little bit scary and we certainly wouldn’t advise parents to let their children listen in, although his pronunciation of ‘one horse’, which sounds like a Spanish man by the name of Juan Orse, is pretty funny.

Have a listen for yourself in the video above, but don’t be expecting to feel all festive afterwards or anything.
