Dog Is Dead 's cover of The Waitresses' Christmas Wrapping, stays true to the original but that's why we love it! The track was originally released in 1981 and peaked at number 45 in the UK.
The video for Christmas Wrapping was shot live and was filmed by Franklyn Banks. The boys wear festive Christmas jumpers and scarves and perform next to statues of Father Christmas and his reindeer. All five members look to be really enjoying themselves as they perform the catchy Christmas song.
