Hear How Jeff Foxworthy Celebrates Christmas, Redneck Style

You might be a redneck if...”

Country music fans are more than familiar with comedian Jeff Foxworthy’s signature line. It has inspired some of his most memorable bits, and a country-themed Christmas tune.

That tune is called “Redneck 12 Days of Christmas,” which Foxworthy released in 1996.

The song serves as a parody of  “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” Foxworthy co-wrote it with Tim Wilson, and changed the words so the song screamed “redneck.”

A Christmas Classic Gets Major Redneck Makeover

For example, instead of “five golden rings,” Foxworthy sings of “five flannel shirts” on the fifth day of Christmas.

That’s just one of the many hysterical redneck gifts that Foxworthy mentions. Others include six cans of Spam and two huntin’ dogs.

The song is funny enough to listen to on its own. But the music video adds a whole new level of comedy.

Directed by Michael McNamara, the video opens with Foxworthy enjoying time with his redneck family. Suddenly, a knock on the door interrupts their peaceful state of redneck tranquility.

Foxworthy gets up to answer the door, where he is greeted by a tiny elf who looks exactly like him. He invites the little guy inside and tells him about the redneck presents he bought for his family.

The video also shows Foxworthy doing a mini comedy show for his redneck family:

Standing on a small stage with a tinsel backdrop, Foxworthy tells a series of Christmas-themed jokes. They all go with his usual “You might be a redneck if…” theme, such as, “you can burp the entire chorus to jingle bells.

The Ending Is Equal Parts Hilarious & Heartwarming

At the end of the video, Foxworthy and his family break his mama out of jail, and everyone is reunited for Christmas. The group gathers together to sing the final line, which makes the elf get a little teary-eyed.

Foxworthy closes the song with a wish for all of his fans to have a happy holiday season. But you may not even be able to hear him over the sound of your own laughter. The song is just that funny!

We’ve heard the “Redneck 12 Days of Christmas” many times before, but it never fails to make us laugh!
