I like to enjoy Christmas in my own kind of way. Usually this involves healthy amounts of cynicism, dark humour and the subversion of traditional Christmas values. Please help me find (preferrably online) videos, music, articles, pictures, films etc. that subvert the traditional christmas archetypes. The funnier the better, I'm not really looking for academic articles.
A few examples:
Redubbed XMas specials
Songs similar to the ones listed here
(especially the Vindictives cover of Nuttin For Christmas)
This TV advert

Bad Santa, Nightmare Before Christmas and Gremlins are a few films I can think of that fit the mould.
