This might be the most unusual chapter in the long and storied career of Nobel Prize winner Bob Dylan.

In 2009, Dylan turned a classic Christmas song into a holiday music video so strange it has to be considered a masterpiece.  

Dylan, wearing a wig and a hat, sings a polka version of “It Must Be Santa” from his “Christmas In The Heart” album as revelers around him sing, drink, dance and fight at a wild party.

The lyrics are mostly faithful to the 1960 original, except for when he starts naming U.S. presidents along with Santa’s reindeer.

Somehow, the tune was named one of Dylan’s 10 worst in a 2013 poll of Rolling Stone readers… a judgement that seems more than a little harsh.

Check it out above and decide for yourself.
