On December 12, 1999 I had a simple plan: ruthlessly mock pay fitting tribute to Christmas with Paul Todd, a new CD that the company I then worked for had just released.

A few years later, unbeknownst to me, someone stole the audio track for a YTMND page, and a legend was born.

And of course, someone else has since stolen the audio from there to make a YouTube "video" that has over a million views.

C'est la vie.

Congratulations. You've found the original.
