Community: “Christmas Infiltration” with Donald Glover & Danny Pudi

Before there was “3001,” there was “Christmas Infiltration” – watch Donald Glover and Danny Pudi in one of my favorite scenes from Community!

Before I knew about Childish Gambino, I knew about Donald Glover’s musical skills through episodes of the show Community. I’m a massive fan of the show, and even though Glover has explained his time on the series wasn’t always fun, I personally found his work on the show undeniably funny. The “Christmas Infiltration” rap with Danny Pudi as Abed is one of my favorite scenes in all of Community, and trust me, I have a LOT of favorites from that series.

In “Regional Holiday Music,” Community takes on the then-popular show Glee with this incredibly hilarious musical episode. The always-comical Taran Killam shows up as Greendale’s glee club director and works very hard to entice each member of the group to join his choir just in time for regionals. After Abed is convinced by the director, he approaches his best friend Troy, who is a Jehovah’s Witness, to join in the Christmas fun as a secret investigator of the holiday. What transpires is a hilarious and fun holiday rap. Watch!

As Abed (Danny Pudi) tries to convince the group to help Mr. Radisson (Taran Killam), he goes to convince the group starting with Troy (Donald Glover).
