REVIEW: Travis and Jason Kelce Provide the #1 Song of Christmas
The latest single off of A Philly Special Christmas Special features two brothers putting their own spin on The Pogues’ Fairytale of New York. It’s Fairytale of Philadelphia:
Does my opinion even matter on this one?
I mean it’s already shot up to the #1 song in the entire country on iTunes:

This was great. I didn’t even know The Pogues’ original version before I had seen the track list. We need more grungier Christmas songs if you ask me. Not everything is perfect around Christmas time. Some people spend their Christmas in a warm house by a fire. Some spend them in the drunk tank.
Here’s some behind the scenes. WARNING: If you have a brother you’re close with or you fight with it’ll probably make you emotional so if you’re at your desk around co-workers find somewhere private:
There’s something perfect about Travis recording in a tank top, probably hungover, and slightly sunburnt because he passed out by the pool while in front of a movie poster of The Waterboy.
The Kelce brand is on fire right now. These dudes can’t miss. I’ve told you and I’ll tell you again. They’re going to be bigger than the Mannings and they already might be. The viewership for Monday Night Football is going to be insane. People can’t get enough of Travis and Jason Kelce. They’re untouchable right now. There’s like some sort of Taylor Swift witchcraft happening. Like things that would normally nuke a person’s career are just elevating them to new heights (no pun intended). I mean typically when an athlete’s old tweets are dug up they’re filled with unsavory shit only a dumb teenager would tweet. Travis Kelce’s were just him being an absolute meat head endearing himself to the Swifties even more:

I give the song 10 out of 10 Kelce Clauses and I think it’s the first time this has happened in the history of me reviewing Eagles linemen Christmas albums:
Check out our interview with Charlie Hall (around 27:45) who produced both Christmas albums and plays drums in The War on Drugs. Find out what classic almost got left out:
