    Like all holidays smothered in wacky symbolism, Christmas is a bit strange. Perhaps that's what inspired The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne to make his own psychedelic holiday movie entitled Christmas on Mars. Although an Eraserhead-toned Christmas flick seems a bit odd, let's realize one of the top grossing of all time featured Tim Allen gaining super powers because a fat guy fell off his roof. When it comes to Christmas movies, creative freedom is regularly exploited.

    Christmas on Mars synopsis:

    It's Christmas time, and the colonization of Mars is underway. However, when an oxygen generator and a gravity control pod malfunction, Major Syrtis (the Lips' Steven Drozd) and his team (including the Lips' Michael Ivins) fear the worst. Syrtis also hallucinates about the birth of a baby, and many other strange things. Meanwhile, a compassionate alien superbeing (Coyne) arrives, inspiring and helping the isolated astronauts.

    The 82-minute feature includes appearances by Fred Armisen, Modest Mouse's Isaac Brock, and Adam Goldberg—who is no stranger to holiday flicks. For the next 12 hours, Christmas on Mars will be streaming for free in its entirety on YouTube. So far, we've made it about 12-minutes in and can guarantee we'll be passing on the mushroom hors d'oeuvres tray on Christmas.
