The pair joined “狐狸 & 朋友周末” on Sunday to discuss the traction after they outperformed Adele’s “轻松我” for the top spot on iTunes earlier this week.
“This is one of those songs you cannot not smile when you listen to it,” Rowe stated. “And our country right now, 人, we need to smile… and hopefully this song’s doing it.”
The silly track highlights the nitty-gritty bits of Santa Claus’ 工作, which includes reindeer kicking “buttock in his face,” climbing up and down messy chimneys, outrunning “big guard dogs” 和 “making a B-line for the bathroom” after consuming too many cookies.
Rich provided viewers insight into the making of the hit song:
“I was interviewing Mike for my show… and I said, 嘿, 麦克风, you know somebody who’s got a dirty job that you probably never thought about? And he said, who’s that? I said Santa Claus,” Rich explained.
The duo debuted the track, which is also available on Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music, 上 “狐狸 & 友人” 上个星期, with an accompanying pre-recorded music video.
The video features Rowe, 59, 和富人, 47, singing their new tune while decked out in Christmas wear. The Oak Ridge Boys also appear in the video, offering up backing vocals for the track.
All proceeds directly benefit Folds of Honor, an organization that provides scholarships to military families, and the mikeroweWORKS Foundation, which promotes trades and apprenticeships.
