Watch Will Ferrell Scream About 'Elf' in the Streets of New York

Pin It
Nothing makes the holidays brighter like Will Ferrell running around in a green Christmas onesie on the streets of New York City.

And as if that wasn't enough to spread holiday cheer, the "Elf" star teamed up with "Billy on the Street" host Billy Eichner (who rocked a red version of Will's onesie), and shouted out holiday questions to passersby.

"What is the better Christmas movie? Elf or Scrooge?," Billy asked one guy he scared the crap out of. "Scrooge," the man replied...right in Will's face. After Billy jumped for joy and gave him a dollar, Will ran over to the man and yelled in disbelief "What?!...What?!" and snatched the dollar out of his hand.

Of course, Will - who is basically the king of Christmas thanks to Elf ­- was serious about people getting the questions right. And by right we mean in the favor of Elf if any of the questions had to do with holiday movies.

Or, the best scents of the holidays. At one point in the clip, the duo approached a woman and asked her about the best gifts from the Three Kings. "Which is better: gold, frankincense and myrrh?'," Billy asks. "It's so obvious," Will yells as she tries to think of the answer...and proceeds to lose it when she says gold.

If this clip made you wish even harder for an Elf sequel with Will in it, think again. Back in 2013, the actor told People he would never be a part of Elf 2. He didn't say he was done with Christmas movies altogether though, so let's keep our fingers crossed for another holiday cult classic.
