A Very Merry Malorts-mas To One And All

By Karl Klockars in Miscellaneous on Dec 14, 2010 7:45PM

As founder, CEO and acting board president of the Brotherhood and Sisterhood of Jeppsen's Malort, I have found that there's no holiday that can't be made better by applying a small dose of our locally-infamous grimace-inducing herbal liqueur. As such, select Chicagoistas y -istos flock to anything that combines the Christmakwanzakkah spirit with bitter flavor, and finding this warmed our hearts with the glow of a dozen ounces of Carl Jeppsen's mulekick.

We didn't know that Galway Bay was such a pro-Malort destination, but according to this clip, it is. In just 55 seconds, this video from writer/director Sam Mechling manages to pack in some very NSFW language, hipster murder, a Clutch Cargo-esque bottle of Malort, fire, apocalyptic imagerly, the invitation to warm your hands betwixt some fine gentleman's testicles, aaaaaand Slayer. And nothing, but nothing, says Merry Christmas like "Angel of Death."
