So I posted a mention about this earlier in the Friday afternoon thread, but as it is now officially the “Christmas season,” as opposed to your local drug store which has had Christmas decorations and candy out since Labor Day or so, it is time for something that I found on the Internet a year or so ago, thought it was funny, and decided to take part in. And now I can bring it up here. This is: The Little Drummer Boy Challenge.

No, not this one, but this was obligatory.

The Little Drummer Boy Challenge looks like it was started back in 2011 (or at least that’s the first post I found) by writer Michael Alan Peck. The rules are simple: from 12:01 Black Friday (so technically this started earlier today) to midnight on December 23rd, you cannot listen to the song “The Little Drummer Boy.” If you do, you are out. Looking over it, since “midnight on Day X” can be ambiguous, it looks like according to the official website it’s 11:59 PM December 23rd into midnight on the 23rd/24th, which seems much more fitting. Essentially, from now until Christmas Eve, if you do hear the song, whether by accident or on purpose, you are out. Unless somebody does it by the LDB version of Rickrolling you. You can read the rules here. But it’s like a musical version of The Game. By the way, now I just lost The Game. And now you all did too. Suckers!

Back to this challenge, I guess we can use this as an open thread for our own game for the next month. Will there be prizes? I don’t know! Until then, the drummer is on the hunt, and I wish you godspeed and best of luck in your mission to escape his clutches.

And remember that Zappadan begins December 4th.

Just lost. Fuck. I’m actually amazed I’ve made it this far, considering that my office ladies at school are constantly playing shite Xmas music.

This game seems like it would be fairly easy, as I am not even allowed to enter the property at most malls.

Fuck! 7-11 was playing Christmas music! Luckily, THAT song was not on.

This is going to be harder than i thought…

I just remembered that sometimes they play this song in church! I may be out by tonight…

ballsofsteelandfury

Still alive!

Game Time Decision

And don’t mind the Bowie version of this song

I’m in! Unless some asshole comes up with an EDM version of the song, I think I can limit my exposure.
