[Pink Culture] RuPaul's Green Screen Christmas

So in the grand tradition of Christmas TV specials, RuPaul and many of the queens of RuPaul's Drag Race put up a weird little Christmas episode of their own. Thus we have RuPaul's Green Screen Christmas, which is literally that. The whole 20+ minute show consists of various personalities from the show standing in front of various green screen backgrounds.

Of course this little special is pretty much a blatant effort to promote the different songs from RuPaul's rather crazy-brilliant Christmas album, Slay Belles. But more than that it's quite the celebration of campy humor, as has always been the case when it comes to most things RuPaul. And don't get me wrong here, this is not an insult. I appreciate well-done camp since it actually takes smarts to write that kind of balance into things.

Many of the songs from the special are available on the official YouTube via Logo TV. To get you started, here's the opening credits set to the tune of "Merry Christmas, Mary"
