You may think that ‘All I want for Christmas’ by Mariah Carey is the ultimate festive song – but a totally crazy viral video shows what can happen when it’s performed badly.

Carey posted the song on YouTube five years ago (it was originally released in 1994), and since then it’s racked up a staggering 95 million views – leaving some of us a little sick of hearing it.

One of the main issues with the track is that revellers get carried away by it at parties and they start singing along, leaving the rest of us in despair.

So in a hidden camera prank, video joker Ed Bassmaster decided to take this own horrific singing to the streets  by pretending that he was getting over-excited by the tune on his headphones.

The clip shows a number of extremely awkward moments, as the public listen to his cringe-worthy performances.

Come back, Mariah – all is forgiven.
