Jingle Bells + Bollywood; need I say more?
December 25, 2010 8:49 AM   Subscribe

Jingle Bells, gujarati/tamil style. A year ago or so, MTV India released two Christmas-themed bumpers/music-videos, each an animated rendition of the Xmas classic "Jingle Bells" in regional dialects and in regional musical styles: gujarati/tamil and punjabi.

The animator, Nupar Bhargava, has her own channel on YouTube and has been interviewed on CGTantra about her work for MTV and her animation process.

Great videos! Although, the punjabi one sounds suspiciously like English.

I really, really want to hear more Christmas classics done in these styles.

A Pakistani Facebook friend posted this a week or so ago and I cannot stop listening to the punjabi one. They are great! I am glad to know more about this project.
