omg reindeers. We've got reindeers here.
Most impressed by the prop assemblage here: North Pole sign, sleigh bells, reindeer hats of sorts.
While waiting, Brandon J. Simmons whistles "Sleigh Ride." Band member: "That's some good whistlin'."
Evidence of the band's awesomeness. Director Jaime Roberts: "OK so the reindeers are going to fight and bump heads. I need you to play some of that Animal Planet type of music." Band: "All right."
"Your cue is the line ending in 'ungulate.'" "Uh, what's an ungulate?" (It means, roughly, "being pawed" or "hoofed animal").
Besides being a expert whistler, Brandon J. Simmons plays a truly excellent reindeer.
Aaaaaand scene! Cue kazoo.
