If you're having any trouble at all finding your holiday spirit, Billy Eichner and Will Ferrell's Billy on the Street episode is just the thing you need. I promise. Especially if you've been out shopping or conferencing with family about what to get for that great aunt you never see.

They shove dollar bills into people's hands who "agree with them." And, as any avid watcher of Billy On The Street knows, the best part isn't even the stars: It's watching the subjects react. And when you take Eichner and add fellow loudmouth Will Ferrell to the mix... well, it's a Christmas miracle.

Another woman literally jumps from the shock as they round a corner of Manhattan's Flatiron Building. When Billy and Will start going tit for tat on Scrooged versus Elf, Ferrell and a woman have a bonding moment and almost come close to a proper fist bump. And then there's this gift of a moment:
