Last Year Next Year This Year New Year [co-starring Debbie Harry] is a follow up to the classic 2006 John Roberts video The Christmas Tree [previously] both starring your Mom.

John Roberts is one of the original Youtube stars whose video Jackie and Debra (Part 2) was a massive viral hit and was nominated for a weird Daytime Emmy. Since then, through his perfection of the character of Your Mom, he has landed a role as the Cartoon Mom on Bob's Burgers. Most recently, Mom starred in a short film called "Indian Summer" (Part 2, Part 3)

My Son Is Gay? has an incredible arc.

Just found this awkward/sweet interview with Roberts and his real mom from Good Day NY in 2008.

John Roberts is so good. The mom character is a brilliant parody and yet there's also something sincere and affectionate about it that comes through. I find it completely and utterly baffling that so few people in the "previously" link liked it.

Watching "The Christmas Tree" is an annual tradition in my house.

"Oh, look at that tree!"
"There's a lot of presents."
"...and pick up all that shit."

Anyone who says Metafilter is getting too snarky or negative should go look at the "previously" link. Posted in 2006 and man, people were dicks.

"Pick up all that shit" has become a standard item on to-do lists in my house.
