Will Ferrell Dramatically Reading Out Christmas Carols Will Bring You Festive Joy

The star gave us a dramatic reading of "Ding Dong Merrily on High" alongside his Daddy's Home 2 castmates, and it was of course hilarious.

It's finally our favourite time of year – the festive season. And this year comedy sequel Daddy's Home 2 is leading the holiday-themed movies on offer. The film sees the return of Brad (Will Ferrell) and Dusty (Mark Wahlberg). Having put their troubles from the first instalment behind them, they attempt to enjoy a peaceful family Christmas only for their own fathers, played by John Lithgow and Mel Gibson respectively, to show up and cause more havoc.

So when BuzzFeed UK sat down with Will and co. to discuss the film recently, we thought we'd inject some more festive cheer into proceedings. And they didn't disappoint – dramatically reading out some classic Christmas carols.

Here's what went down...

First of all, let's just remind ourselves of how "Ding Dong Merrily on High" actually goes. (And if this doesn't get you in the festive spirit already, I don't know what will...)

Will got straight into the swing of things.


And read the words out beautifully.

Thank you.


We were also treated to a dramatic reading of "Mary's Boy Child" by Mark.
