Christmas cards just not cutting it this year? How about season’s greetings from the Thin White Duke himself? David Bowie has recorded a special holiday message for BBC Radio 6. The best part? He delivers the message giving his best Elvis Presley impression. No, really.

The clip aired during yesterday’s The Radio Clash, the first-ever broadcast from The Clash’s Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, and Topper Headon. Check out the transcription below, followed by the recording. It’s nearly as heartwarming and inspirational as Iggy Pop’s video card

“Hello everybody, this is David Bowie making a telephone call from the US of A. At this time of the year I can’t help but remember my British-ness and all the jolly British folk, so here’s to you and have yourselves a Merry little Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you very much.”
