Amy Poehler and comedian Billy Eichner hassled a few New Yorkers recently to sing Christmas carols with them for a dollar.

The stunt was a bit for Eichner's Fuse show "Billy on the Street." The clip aired on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Dec. 11 and can be viewed here (Warning: Video contains censored expletives).

In the video, Poehler and Eichner are dressed like characters from a Dickens novel and they ask strangers to finish the lyrics of Christmas carols like "Deck the Halls," "The Twelve Days of Christmas" and "We Wish You a Merry Christmas."

At one point, the two encounter a woman holding a baby. When they learned the baby's name is "Arrow," they ditch their attempt to sing Christmas carols with her.

Poehler is set to co-host the Golden Globe Awards with Tina Fey on Jan. 12. The two comedians appear on the cover of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly and they also were guest editors on the issue, which hits newsstands on Dec. 13.

"When we're next to each other & we like to hug each other a lot, like we're in the womb," Poehler told the magazine. "And Tina's thumbprint matches my pinky, because that's what we were like in the womb."

The nominations for the next Golden Globes ceremony were announced on Thursday, Dec. 12. Check out the full list of nominations here.
