Drunk History is back! And this time it comes with a Christmas poem in its jolly sack. Jim Carrey plays Santa Claus, with his cheeks like jelly and a bowl full of …jelly. Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes also star, as Allan McLeod leads us through a holiday classic despite the fact that he "drank since 2:30 today." [Chewing noise.]
