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.

Love the skin you’re in? No way! It looks much better on the animal(s) that it was cruelly stripped from!
How utterly disgusting. Shame on you, Mr. Mayer! You’ve hit an all time low with this atrocity!

I love it! Not a big fan of his anymore but hey, life is too short to care about what other people think about you and what you want to wear. On a side note, one day I’m going to have me a coyote vest made from coyotes I’ve shot myself. They are a nuisance and are killing many animal populations including elk and deer. They eat peoples small pets and are over populated. They need managed. Better to kill it and wear it than kill it and leave it to rot.
