Christmas in Hollis by Run DMC (1987)


During the 1987 holiday season, MTV put the music video for “Christmas in Hollis” by rappers Run DMC in heavy rotation. It soon became a hit with me and my brother, and it is still a holiday favorite of ours. The “Christmas in Hollis” song is available at iTunes.

UPDATE: My brother has pointed out that the video is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year (!).
