Alfie Deyes: What’s up, guys! For a while now I have wanted to create a tag video and I thought there was no better time to do it than Christmas time. Now, I know this isn’t the most original idea ever, I’m not stupid, but I just thought I’d make a Christmas tag video so that some of my YouTube friends can do it and loads of you guys can make a response too. So what I’m going do is, I’m gonna leave the questions that I’ve answered down below in the description and I’d love it if you watching now made a response and titled it The Christmas Tag. I will watch these responses and try and comment on them, try and like them and share them on my Twitter and stuff like that and just have a little community tag video that’s about Christmassy things. Let’s do it!
Use one noise to describe how excited you are for Christmas.
Eiiiiiiieee I’m that excited!
What is the best present you’ve ever been given and why?
The best present I’ve ever had for Christmas was probably a pair of rollerblades when I was about seven years old. Now, I tried them on in the shop when my parents were getting them, and literally fell in love, love at first sight, straight up! I tried them on when I was at home for about ten minutes, my parents let me use them for ten minutes and wow! It was like, the best thing ever. I was so excited. But once the ten minutes was up, my parents put them away and said I wasn’t allowed to use them for two weeks until Christmas and I was so sad, but at the same time I was so excited for Christmas so that I could use them and yeah I was super happy!
What’s the worst present you’ve ever been given and why?
I know I wrote these questions but I am trying so hard to think of a bad present, like the worst present. Erm ... honestly can’t think of anything. I remember a bad present for my sister once, I’ll just say that instead. Once my sister got given a cupcake-shaped soap, so it was a bar of soap in the shape of a cupcake and she didn’t know this, she thought it was a cupcake so she opened it straight up, bit into it and it was a bar of soap!
Sing a line from your favourite Christmas song.
Snow is falling, all around me, Children playing, having fun. It’s the season of love and understanding. Merry Christmas, everyone. Time for party and celebrations. People …
What is your favourite Christmas film?
I don’t have just one favourite Christmas film. I literally cannot make my mind up, I’m stuck between Home Alone, just all of Home Alones, and Elf. I absolutely love Elf and he's hilarious … but Home Alone I just want the little boy as my boy when I’m older, I just want him as my son. So I’m torn between Home Alone and Elf.
Show us how good you are at wrapping a present.
When it comes to wrapping I just go for the natural look. So I don’t bother going with this stuff. And today I’m going to be wrapping some snow spray. It sounds cool. Perfect … done!
If you could rename one of Santa’s reindeer, what would you name it?
This may sound weird but I’m kind of jealous of, like, reindeers cause they get to fly, chill with Santa, chill with elves, don’t have to work and they just get to, like, give people happiness, so I would probably name it Alfie, therefore I could be a reindeer! That would be cool!
And lastly, what is your favourite thing about Christmas?
Again, sorry guys, I’m kind of cheating the system and I’m going to say two things that are my favourite things about Christmas. Number one being eating. I love to eat so much and when there is that much good-tasting food, um, it makes me so, so happy. So number one is going to be eating and number two is going to be giving presents, which sounds a bit lame but honestly I love seeing people's reactions when I give them a present that they like, so eating food and giving presents!
And that is it, that is the video done, so I hope you have enjoyed it. If you did, then please give the video a massive thumbs up. I’ve got some good Christmassy-smelling, sparkling cinnamon and caramel apple candles. I've got some little lights set up over there. I've got my Christmas attire on. And I’m going to tag Louise from SprinkleofGlitter and Chai from MyNamesChai to do this tag video that I made up. But obviously, I want you guys to be doing it too. So please if you are watching this do upload a video of you doing this Christmas tag. I will try and, like, comment, Tweet, Facebook and share loads of you guys’ videos because I want this tag to be fun, like a community thing and I want everyone to do it. So yeah! I hope you enjoyed the video and have a great Christmas time and I will see you next Friday with a brand new video. Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye ...
