Kristen Bell's 'Text Me Merry Christmas' Is A New Kind Of Holiday Tune

The warmth of a holiday greeting is not necessarily felt in a one-dimensional, emoji-filled text, but a text is as good as it gets for some in 2014.

Kristen Bell and the a cappella group Straight No Chaser teamed up to poke fun at the modern seasons greeting with a little ditty titled "Text Me Merry Christmas."

"Text me Merry Christmas / Let me know you care / Just a word or two / Of text from you / Will remind me you’re still there / You don’t have to add much to it / One smiley face will do / Baby text me Merry Christmas / Cause I’m missing kissing you," Bell sings.

SNC said they knew immediately that Bell would be the perfect choice for the duet.

"We wanted a Christmas song that spoke to how informal communication has become,” singer Randy Stine told RyanSeacrest.com. Adding: "[Bell] nailed every note and delivered the lyrics with the perfect comedic tone. We were hanging on her every word … when we weren’t looking at our phones.”
