We have an especially cool piece of news for you today, Seibertronians, just in time to get you into the holiday spirit! Coming from a YouTube channel named Candice Santora, we have a brand new video of Beast Wars' Gary Chalk (Optimus Primal) performing a very special version of the classic Christmas song "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch", dedicated to his old nemesis Megatron. The performance is quite incredible, and the lyrics are extremely clever. It's definitely worth a watch, so you can find the video mirrored down below.

We faithfully await David Kaye's (who voiced Beast wars Megatron) response, and when that does happen, you'll hear about it here, on Seibertron.com!

Dude... ever talk to someone that works for the post office, or UPS? Some of them totally hate the Christmas rush. It's like, Stressimus Maximus.

Well that's more like hating the job then the actual holiday, I mean don't most people at least have friends and/or family to be around during the times?

I totally get not liking some parts of it like your example but hating the whole holiday entirely, so your saying there is redeeming qualities about it?

Dude, no. The holiday season can totally affect one's job in negative ways that the rest of the year does not. One can easily enjoy their job at every other time of the year without the stress and rush of the holiday season. Don't pretend you know how people feel about their jobs at all times of the year.

Nah, man. What I'm sayin' is there's peeps that hate the holidays 'cause their jobs are harsh this time of year. It's kind of like if your stepdad was mean and loved lima beans, you might end up hatin' lima beans cause it makes you think of your mean stepdad. Ya feel me?

Fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade has shared with us what has become the annual tradition for the holidays from voice actor David Kaye, famous in the Transformers community for the role of Beast Wars Megatron - but also Hardshell in Transformers: Prime, Optimus Prime, Grimlock and Lugnut in Transformers Animated, and MEgatron and Galvatron in the Unicron trilogy series: the David Kaye / Beast Wars Megatron Christmas video greeting!

This year, the song being parodied is Where Are you Christmas, which has become Where Are you Optimus - a good accompaniment to Gary Chalk's You're A Mean One Megatron (from You're A Mean One, Mr Grinch), which we covered here. Check it out embedded below, and happy holidays to all!

This is fantastic. It's great that these two continue to have fun with this after all of these years. Especially since it's been 21 years since they started work together as Optimus and Megatron. I hope these two get to reprise their roles in a future Transformers show. Kudos to them both. Thanks for continuing to entertain all of us Transformers fans! Merry Christmas to both of them. :D
