'22 Minutes' Carol Celebrates Christmas Baby Justin Trudeau (VIDEO)

'This Hour Has 22 Minutes' is getting into the holiday spirit through song, but instead of celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, they're honouring another "shining star" – Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, born on Dec. 25, 1971.

The show's Trudeaumania-inspired tune is a spoof of disco group Boney M's groovy cover of 'Mary's Boy Child.' And it's pretty cringe-worthy.

Just take a look at some of the lyrics:

"Hark now hear the Liberals sing, a king was born today. And we'll relive Trudeaumania because of Christmas Day."


The 'This Hour Has 22 Minutes' holiday special airs on CBC TV at 8 p.m. on Dec. 10.
