Drunk History Christmas With Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes & Jim Carrey (VIDEO)

You know what makes a classic Christmas tale even better? Telling it while inebriated and having celebrities act out the scenes.

That's exactly what "Drunk History," the beloved Funny Or Die web series that's as sober as it is educational, has drummed up for a special Christmas episode.

Featuring Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes and Jim Carrey donning a Santa Claus outfit (in lieu of his usual Grinch), "Drunk History Christmas" tells the classic tale with a been-drinking-since-2:30-p.m. twist. Which, of course, makes it 10 times better.
