“Mike and John were talking and decided ‘Ya know, Santa Claus has a really dirty job when you think about it!’” reads the description of the duo’s music video on YouTube. “The addition of the Oak Ridge Boys was the cherry on top, and all proceeds of the song will be given to Folds Of Honor, and The Mike Rowe Works Foundation.”
They concluded: “We think ‘Santa’s Gotta Dirty Job’ could be a new classic for every Christmas to come. Give it a view, sit back and smile!”
The silly track highlights the nitty-gritty bits of Santa Claus’ job, which includes reindeer kicking “buttock in his face,” climbing up and down messy chimneys, outrunning “big guard dogs” and “making a B-line for the bathroom” after consuming too many cookies.
“Santa Claus gotta dirty job / Santa Claus gotta dirty job,” they sing in the chorus. “Santa Claus gotta dirty job / and he does it all night long.”
