'12 Days Of Leftovers' Outback Steakhouse Ad Is Both Gross And Amusing (VIDEO)

You know what doesn't sound tasty at all? A slab of slimy ham, congealed creamed corn or a blob of fermented cranberry sauce. Now imagine those Christmas leftover foods singing, thanks to the wonders of animation.

The silly ad below is the clever work of Outback Steakhouse, which takes the tune of "12 Days Of Christmas" and swaps two turtle doves and five golden rings for the likes of icky candied yams and fuzzy macaroni. The chain suggests, not unconvincingly, that you go dine at one of its locations rather than subject yourself to some truly questionable leftovers.

We're tempted to agree with them -- that "something creepy from the freezer" is giving us the willies.
