Sufjan Stevens truly regards Christmas as the season of giving. On top of releasing his holiday song box set Silver & Gold, packing it with a massive 80-page booklet, coloring book, Christmas ornament, stickers, posters, and temporary tattoos, the prolific singer/songwriter has joined up with married musical duo Jeff Shoop and Rosie Thomas to create the “Friendship Slay Ride” series, seven promotional videos that are as incredible as they are insanely bizarre.

Running the gamut of mocking local law firm commercials, monster truck rallies, late night infomercials, and workout videos, a few clips even feature Thomas’ stand-up alter-ego Sheila Saputo (who will open for Stevens on his upcoming tour).

Click below to get a glimpse at Stevens’ excellent sense of humor.
