It’s pretty obvious that The Wolf of Wall Street is going to become a Christmas classic. Leonardo DiCaprio is continuing his streak of playing wealthy assholes, Martin Scorsese is no doubt imbuing the story of a corrupt stock broker with all kinds of life lessons, and I’m pretty sure Jonah Hill is playing The Grinch. All the ingredients are there.

So it makes sense that Owen Weber has created a percussive trailer mash-up featuring the forthcoming Scorsese joint and another seasonal favorite (that some people are trying to foolishly remake).

It’s a radical, high-energy collision that proves George Bailey had some grit to him. I’m just glad he didn’t go with It’s a Wonderful Wall Street as the title.

And here’s the Wolf of Wall Street trailer for comparison.

’Tis the season.
