Alongside being a holiday classic, "Baby It's Cold Outside" is, well, kind of rapey. And amid all the talk about the disturbing nature of the lyrics, Funny or Die decided to actually act the lyrics out with Comedy Bang Bang's Scott Aukerman and Casey Wilson in "An Honest Performance of 'Baby It's Cold Outside'."
You know, because hearing about rape isn't enough; we've got to see it to understand the weirdness that is the lyrics of the "classic" song.
Starring Wilson and Aukerman as the male and female voices in the song, the two kick it off in consensual fashion. Unfortunately as the lyrics turn, like we said, rapey, so does Aukerman's character. Moving from a (seemingly) kind guy, the CBB lead turns into a terrifying misogynist as the song goes on.

Or, in other terms, a rapist. Which is clarified at the end of the video when Aukerman's character is knocked unconscious after attempting to hold Wilson to a chair with duct tape.
"This is Casey Wilson reminding you this is a completely inappropriate song," she says. "Happy Holidays!"

On another note, Scott Aukerman also released a version of the Christmas tune alongside comedian, and Never Not Funny podcast host, Jimmy Pardo, a number of years ago.
