Three Wishes: Mitch Haaseth

Two timeless holiday traditions — a reading of  “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” and… booze — have been melded together by FunnyOrDie. The holiday edition of their “Drunk History” series features a sauced telling of the classic poem, as Jim Carrey, Ryan Gosling, and Eva Mendes are put through the slurred paces.

Gosling’s “spring” from his bed could use a little work (but then again, why would anyone be in a rush to leave a sleeping Eva Mendes?).
