Amy Poehler and Billy Eichner try to sing Christmas Carols with New Yorkers in hilarious video

By Daniel S Levine,

Amy Poehler appeared in a new video with comedian Billy Eichner, who is best known for yelling questions at people on the streets of New York. Eichner has his own show now with Funny Or Die and Fuse and a clip premiered on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and needless to say, it is just hilarious.

In the video, the Parks and Recreation star and Eichner ask anyone they see if they want to sing a Christmas song with them for a dollar. Most people agree to do it, but if they aren’t up to Eichner’s high standards, he won’t pay them. If you mess up the lyrics or start singing “Happy Birthday,” you don’t get the dollar. (Although, Poehler does try to remind him that Christmas is Jesus’ birthday.)

Another woman doesn’t get a dollar because he can’t understand why she named her baby “Arrow.” (“Oh hi, I’m the Flash!”) When one man doesn’t want to sing with them, Eichner just assumes that he doesn’t like Poehler.

Poehler is going to host the Golden Globe awards next month, so she might just ask the Hollywood Foreign Press to sing some songs. You never know when it comes to Poehler and Tina Fey.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly this week, Poehler and Fey joked that they’re more like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen than some of the best comedy duos. “When we're next to each other we like to hug each other a lot, like we're in the womb, and Tina's thumbprint matches my pinkie, because that's what we were like in the womb,” Poehler joked.
