SiriusXM Forges a Holiday Sweater Wrapped in 125-Decibel Screams

It’s Christmas Eve. You’re sitting by the fire. Surrounded by family. A glass of eggnog in hand. Chestnuts roasting. Perry Cuomo playing. The idyllic setting. But something feels off. And then it hits you…

The names on the stockings look soft and harmless, with no sharp edges. Your aunts and uncles are just standing around, instead of slamming into each other. The music is slow and passive, without any rapid drumming, thrashing guitars, or guttural vocals. And, worst of all, your sweater—there’s not a single black thread or metal spike anywhere on it.

Fortunately, SiriusXM has the antidote for your holiday ailment. The subscription-based audio broadcasting service produced a video about the “most heavy-metal holiday sweater the world has ever seen”. Created with wool from the angriest sheep on earth, spun with yarn dyed in blood, and knitted with needles made from bone, this is a sweater that will change how you celebrate the holidays forever.

A spot-on recreation of heavy metal tropes that both pays tribute and parodies without ever going into wink-wink mode, the SiriusXM metal sweater video is a joy to unwrap this holiday season. As an added stocking stuffer, SiriusXM is also holding a sweepstakes where one lucky metal lover will win the actual sweater and a trip to California.
