????SOT-Neptune’s Daughter??“Say what’s in this drink?” “No cabs to be had out there.”????VO-radio on air??So some radio stations have decided take a stand and pull the track from their holiday lineups.

????VO-radio tower graphic/christmas music??According to CBC News, radio stations in the U.S. and Canada have decided not to play the song citing the song’s questionable lyrics.????VO-radio??Public affairs head for CBC Music, one of the stations that blacklisted the song this year said that while lyrics are up to interpretation quote-????VO-’’??"...in light of the times we are living in, we have chosen to remove the song, for the time being, from two of our holiday music streams."????VO-Muppet Holiday Special??Some have tried to remove questionable parts of the track, most notably Joseph Gordon Levitt and Lady Gaga in their 2013 role-reversal rendition for Gaga and the Muppets’ Holiday spectacular.????SOT-Muppet Holiday Special??“I really can’t stay.” “Baby it’s cold outside.”????VO-Neptunes Daughter??But the times have changed and the song now just comes off a bit creepy.????SOT-Neptunes Daughter??“I really can’t stay.” Oh baby don’t hold out, baby it’s cold outside.”??
