As just about any parent of toddlers knows, Yo Gabba Gabba! is a Nick Jr. television program about a group of creatures who frequently get together to dance and/or learn life lessons, and it has the amazing ability to hypnotize your children for minutes at a time, thus granting you priceless opportunities to do things like eat an entire sandwich or wash your hands. And the show also tends to feature altrockish celebrity guests.
In the show’s forthcoming Christmas special, one of those guests is the New York indie-pop duo Cults, a couple so young that they’re really not that far outside Yo Gabba Gabba!’s demographic. On the show, they sing the minute-long song “Hot Chocolate” written by Ben Schultz and Steve Berrett. Their appearance features the creatures dancing behind them, which means my daughter won’t want to fast-forward through it. Watch it below.
Yo Gabba Gabba!’s “A Very Awesome Christmas” airs 12/18 at 8PM Eastern on Nick Jr., and it also features appearances from Tony Hawk, Mark Mothersbaugh, My Chemical Romance, and (huh) Tori Spelling.
