We Ain't Talkin' 'Bout This Insane Mashup Of Van Halen And 'Feliz Navidad'

We can all agree that Christmastime would be that much brighter if Van Halen ever got around to making a holiday music album.
But alas, we're left with the ingenuity of Van Halen fans (and one barely 2-minute David Lee Roth song from eight years ago).
One of the latest Van Halen-themed Christmas song offerings comes from YouTube mashup master Bill McClintock, who has again successfully blended two classics from far afield musical realms: VH's "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" and José Feliciano's Christmas ear-worm "Feliz Navidad."
The result is a festive if not entirely seamless blend of Feliciano's music and the "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" vocals.
To build the visual for YouTube, McClintock edited together footage of Van Halen's Jimmy Kimmel Live! performance from 2015 and a Feliciano performance from the '70s.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
