Rhysics Radiohead cover.

A member of the Sydney, Australia band Rhysics has pulled the ultimate "Mariah-roll" by singing Carey's 1994 Christmas megahit "All I Want for Christmas Is You" over Radiohead's 1994 self-loathing anthem, "Creep."

On Monday, musician Jordan Siwek posted a TikTok video of him playing an instrumental version of "Creep" on the piano and invited people to sing it with him on the app. "Creep! Duet with Me!" he wrote.

The member of the Rhysics responded by posting a video that began with the ultimate misdirection. He says that every guy in their 20s and 30s knows "all the words by heart" to the song and then instead of singing "Creep" belts out "All I Want for Christmas Is You."

#duet with @pianojordan It's so nice when people remember about this song every 12 months or so :) #mariahcarey #alliwantforchristmas

The interesting thing about the mashup is that the music to "Creep" and "All I Want for Christmas Is You" is actually pretty similar. Both have similar chord progressions that move from G to versions of B to C and then, the catcher here is the switch to C minor.

Both songs do the C to C minor switch at the same time, "Christmas" in the first verse on the word "underneath" and "Creep" on the word "cry." Notice that both songs suddenly get melancholy when the chord flips from major to minor. It's a jarring change, one that The Beatles used more than a few times.

While the member of the Rhysics' vocal performance does a great job at bridging the gap between both songs, this isn't the first someone has made a "Creep" and "All I Want for Christmas Is You" mashup.

In 2019, William Maranci made a mashup of the two songs by splicing Thom Yorke's vocal over Carey's music.

Andrew Garfield with Stephen Colbert.

Andrew Garfield came onto “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” to promote his new movie, “tick, tick… Boom.” What he gave instead was a truly touching story about love and loss, with a refreshing and relatable twist.

The sweet moment comes at the four-minute mark of the interview, where Colbert asked Garfield how playing Broadway composer Jonathan Larson (who died suddenly of a heart issue at the upswing of his creative career) helped him process the unexpected loss of his mother.

Instead of wishing the pain away, Garfield states, “I hope this grief stays with me.”

Jimmy Fallon #MyFamilyIsWeird.

It’s that time of year again, the holiday season is when we get the pleasure of spending way more time than we’re used to with our families. For those of us who’ve moved away from our immediate families, the holidays are a great time to reacquaint ourselves with old traditions and to realize that some of them may be a little strange.

Every family seems to have its own brand of weirdness. In fact, I wouldn’t trust anyone who says that their family is completely normal.

On November 18, “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon gave everyone a reason to celebrate their unique families by asking them to share their favorite stories under #MyFamilyIsWeird. The responses were everything from odd holiday traditions to family members that may have a screw (or two!) loose.

Here are 17 of the funniest responses.
