Anthony Bourdain's Twisted Christmas Stop-Motion Short (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Chef, writer, and television persona Anthony Bourdain definitely has an adventurous mouth. From his liberal sprinkling of sex and profanity throughout his TV shows to his adventurous eating habits which have tackled sheep testicles, a warthog rectum and a whole cobra. Thus it makes sense that Bourdain's version of a cutesy holiday short would be far more naughty than nice.

Bourdain wrote 'A Krampus Carol,' a stop-motion animated short film which tells what happens to naughty children. Krampus is a European folkloric character, the anti-Santa, who "stands on two hooves and has horns growing out of its skull. An extremely long tongue hangs out of its mouth, and it carries a basket to haul away naughty children." The animation is by Zero Point Zero.

Bourdain's video is frightening yet appealing... maybe this is how eating sheep testicles feels.
