Let Me Take an #Elfie Video Because of Course

Seems some elves just can’t stay away from their camera apps these days.

(NOT THAT I’M COMPLAINING.)

And now it seems they even have their own theme song!

Which obviously means they have their own music video.

Obviously.

Check it out:

From the creators of the video: Inspired by the Elf on the Shelf parenting craze, #ELFIE is a parody video of the Chainsmoker’s hit #SELFIE prepared to take social media by storm this holiday season. While on duty, #ELFIE is the family-friendly model of good behavior that Santa would hope for in a helper, but once the children drift off into dreamland, he parties like it’s December 26th. From visits to Las Vegas to photos with celebrity friends, he has the kind of fun you’ll have to see to believe.

Enjoy humming this tune for the rest of the day! YOU’RE WELCOME.

The Kind of Shining You ABSOLUTELY Do Not Want on Your Tree

It’s a good thing we’re getting some time off for the holidays, because all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

And by that I mean OMG LOOK OUT HE HAS AN AXE!

Elf on the Shelf The Shining on ElfShaming by Kim Bongiorno

The funny thing is that this doesn’t look too scary if you haven’t seen the movie. But if you have seen it? I’m truly sorry for making you piddle your pants and fear your upcoming hotel stay.

Then again, maybe playtime isn’t always as fun as it could be?

Peeping Elf

Here’s the thing about elves: they look like innocent felty folk who just want to steal candy canes and bags of mini marshmallows for adorable games of holiday hockey with passing chickadees and chipmunks.

I mean, yeah, of course they love doing that. Who wouldn’t?

But there are other things they love to do.

Other more…sordid things.

And if they can’t do them?

They watch.

Peeping Elf by MomComs on ElfShaming

Another glorious daytime date ruined by a peeping elf.

The pervs.

The irony here is that this elf’s name is Diamond Snowfake. You’d think with a moniker like that he’d be a wee bit more original and classy than this, BUT NO.

(Am I the only one glad we can’t see what he’s doing with his hands?)
