I haven't posted a 30 Second Spot in, like, more than a year. (One year and four days to be precise.)
'Tis the season for my annual contribution to the War on Christmas, and let me tell you, this is not my best work. It is scored for bass guitar, bass tuba, bass drum and sleigh bells.
The one thing JB-AFAP has in its favor, however, is short length. You could listen to it twice in one minute - and that includes 10 seconds of silence.
Got half a minute? Merry Melodies to all.
