We may, right now, be living through the beginning of Henry Rollins’ David Hasselhoff/William Shatner phase — the phase in which celebrities make a living by professionally making fun of themselves. Rollins spoofed his own legendarily intense persona last night on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show. On the show, Colbert and Rollins, both bedecked in lit-up Christmas sweaters, sang the holiday tune “Carol Of The Bells,” with Rollins angrily grunting all his parts. Watch it below.
Rollins in a Christmas sweater is funny and all, but I’d argue that it would’ve been more on-brand if he’d been wearing nothing but a pair of running shorts that were somehow Christmas-themed.
