Tweet Surrender

So who spent Christmas Eve wrapped in a towel and drank warm ale? Who got absolutely hammered? And who got the best present ever? Find out in this week’s Tweet Surrender.

We never thought of that. Looks like we’ll be cancelling our gym membership first thing tomorrow. You never know when you’re going to run into a Jethro Tull tribute band who’re a man down.

Many of the Twitter users who favourited the Mötley Crüe bassist’s tweet were, in fact, jellyfish.

That’s the spirit of Christmas, all rolled up in one magical tweet from the Rage Against The Machine fret wrangler.

But how will we know what we’re getting for Christmas, Mark? Think about that when you’re pacing the living room next December.

New Found Glory’s Chad Gilbert just made every boyfriend in the world look rubbish. But socks and a sandwich from the petrol station are good gifts too, no matter what anyone says.

We’ve all been there, mate. We’ve actually lost a watch that way, too.

We’re sure this could be the beginning of a heartwarming Christmas TV special. Something probably called Jono And The Towel.

We tried that at the bookies, but they told us to get lost.

Make time to watch this video today. How Brendon didn’t do a sick all over his lovely vest is beyond us.

And on that dreary note, Christmas is officially over. Thanks Rou.
