The Christmas baked potato song. Wait–what?

British singer Matt Lucas seems to have a thing about spuds. Earlier this year, he released a COVID-19-themed song called “Thank You, Baked Potato.” It’s now been updated and re-released for the Christmas season as “Merry Christmas, Baked Potato.”

The original single raised money for Britain’s NHS. This time, proceeds will go to FareShare, a charity that takes surplus food and redistributes to those in need.
