Some memories that still define the warmest moments of American television are the long-running animated Christmas specials. There’s “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” (first aired in 1964), “A Charlie Brown Christmas” (1965) and “Frosty the Snowman” (1969). Many grown-ups remember all of those shows once aired just on CBS.
So somehow it’s still shocking that the soulless, cynical people running CBS today would find a way to trash that memory.
An online video has surfaced called “Frosty the Inappropriate Snowman,” a mash-up of classic “Frosty” scenes (and clips from the less-than-classic 1992 cartoon “Frosty Returns”) along with a collection of audio graffiti – smutty sex lines voiced over by actor Neil Patrick Harris, a star of the CBS sitcom “How I Met Your Mother.”
At first, it might seem like other YouTube travesties where strangers crudely degrade Disney cartoons like “Aladdin” with dirty talk. But then sadly, it quickly becomes clear that this one was a corporate advertisement made by CBS itself in a cheap attempt to create a “viral video” sensation promoting its Monday night adult comedies.
