The ugly Christmas sweater party has evolved from a fun, ironic event that some hipster bike messenger came up with in the early 2000s to being a deadly and joyless office party with required attendance if you want that bonus. To alleviate the ponderousness, they’ve got sweaters that do fun things now. They light up! And they have playable musical instruments! One Gerry Litwin posted this vid (via Tastefully Offensive) of his co-worker playing “Carol of the Bells” on her sweater. She ended up winning the office contest.
It’s impressive how she’s learned how to play her clothing. This is probably a better method of getting in good with the higher-ups especially since sexual harassment at the office holiday party is finally frowned upon.
