If you're a fan of Orange is the New Black -- and if you're not, what are you doing with your life? -- you'll recognize Danielle Brooks and Uzo Aduba, aka Taystee and Crazy Eyes, decking the halls with Brooklyn-based band Oh Honey in this video for Danielle's "Jolly Christmas Melody."
Orange is the New Black, Netflix's original series based on Piper Kerman's memoir of the same name, has been a critical and audience favorite since premiering on the subscription-based service back in July. Brooks and Aduba play two of the most popular characters, the feisty Taystee and the, well, crazy Crazy Eyes. Brooks is a relative newcomer whereas Aduba has a few Broadway credentials -- and an impressive vocal range -- under her belt.
Mitchy Collins and Danielle Bouchard comprise the duo Oh Honey. They decided to load up their "succulent bandwagon" and head to Williamsburg in hopes of becoming honey farmers. The neighborhood is apparently rich with honey and hipsters, but Collins and Bouchard soon found their calling in the "mellifluous blend" of their voices, and began writing songs together. Thus, Oh Honey was born.
Even if you've had your fill of Christmas already with the melee of Black Friday still fresh in your memory, we dare your heart not to grow three sizes after watching this sweet confection. And for fans of Orange, the show won't return until next year, so consider this an early Xmas present.
