No, John Mayer Will Not Be Pulling Santa's Sleigh This Year. That's Just His Coat.

Oh, deer.

John Mayer, whether in a misguided style moment or a fit of pique after hearing “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” on the radio for the six millionth time, made an appearance in N.Y.C. wearing a coat that looks an awful lot like it once belonged to that once-bullied Santa employee.

It’s furry. It’s fuzzy. It has — oh boy, is that a tail? It’s got a hood that he wears when his ears get chilly and festive red trim. And it’s just really hard to understand.

Look, John, we know you love “Who You Love.” (Lord knows that song has made it abundantly clear.) But even if that motto applies to your feelings about this coat, we have some practical concerns; namely, that it may scare small children. Even our most die-hard Mayer fan in the office called this one “indefensible,” so why don’t you return it to the reindeer from whence it came. Otherwise he’s going to be very chilly on his route this Dec. 24.

So…any thoughts on this one? We’re still essentially speechless.

Boo. I wonder how Mayer would feel if he saw his own dog’s paw crushed in a steel leghold trap just like the coyote on his hood. No wonder Taylor Swift got sick of this guy.

Oh Lord… Kanye has started dressing John Mayer too.

That’s gonna leave a lot of strong letters and angry e-mails

Doesn’t surprise me that this guy wears fur.

I am actually worried of his voice or the quality of his songs won’t resent because of that coat! I might not sleep tonight, guys. Nevertheless : don’t you have his email – I’d buy that coat if he sold it! I don’t have any dumbs around to judge me pm how dress. He would do me a favor by selling that coat to me. And he would be safe from the danger to be judged by a bunch of imbecils. Thank you do much in advance for an eventual feed-back fr your side. Truly yours, Ileana

I’m getting really sick of these stupid people wearing animal skins! I guess Mayer’s ability to pay Montana real estate taxes means he can wear the hides of the animals that roam the state. He can’t sing and he’s a total FOOL….this jack just proved it!

Yikes! Looks like he got into a life and death with a pack of wolves and won. His coat and his new love’s placing “undue stress” on lions in her Roar video must have PETA members collectively foaming at the mouth!

Oh John – please tell me that is NOT real fur. You will lose a fan.

That’s by Visvim, my favorite brand.
