Summary EditThe video is formatted like all Haltmann's Archives videos starting with "FILE-02". It opens with this message:
The text begins with a description of Santa Claus, the legendary bringer of Christmas cheer, and his astounding ability to deliver all of the world's presents in a single night. The researchers at Haltmann Works Company suggest that Santa uses a substance called Christmas Spirit to augment his abilities. Through reconnaissance on the North Pole the researchers discovered a factory producing the green liquid, which they took back and experimented on. The substance was found to:
- have a light green color
- be of varying viscoscity
- be extremely volatile
- occasionally emit the sound of a sleigh bell
- empower living matter with tremendous strength
- reproduce in "festive" conditions
The researchers then conclude that Christmas Spirit is what allowed Santa to augment himself and several weapons, such as the bombs that Santa apparently used in the "Iraq bombing of 2002". In order to take advantage of the substance's ability to enhance weaponry, the researchers suggest using high quality rips to produce Spirit. Of the three songs they tried, "Snow halation" produced the most with over 100 liters. The FILE then ends by posing the question of whether Figments have any connection to Christmas Spirit.
"Bonneton (Cap Kingdom)" from Super Mario Odyssey and "Timber Owls" from Final Fantasy 8 play in the background of the video.
Christmas Spirit acts as a major plot device in The SilvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis. It is one of the reasons Santa is captured in "Advent of Hell", and it is used by The Voice Inside Your Head's minions in subsequent episodes.
The mention of "the Iraq bombing of 2002" is a reference to the South Park episode "Red Sleigh Down" (aired December 2002). As described in the FILE, in the episode Santa is captured and tortured in Iraq, then Father Christmas bombs the place into a Christmas wonderland.
"Snow halation" is a major theme on the channel. Though it is not necessarily Christmas-themed, the song was used in SilvaGunner: Rebooted to represent love, Christmas, and high quality rips.
The abilities of
But we believe we have cracked the code -
Santa's abilities are being augmented.
We took a small sample back and ran tests on it - a brief description of the substance can be found below.
light green color
viscosity varies from water-like to very thick. Method of viscosity change unknown
occasionally makes a jingle bell sound
imbues organic and live matter with incredible strength
seems to increase in volume under "festive" conditions. Do not leave unattended at Christmas parties
We have come to the conclusion that Christmas Spirit is what enables Santa to have superhuman strength and abilities.
It is believed that the substance can not only augment living beings, but weapons too.
An example of this can be seen in the Iraq bombing of 2002: Santa, having been captured, escaped Iraq and laid waste to the city below, turning it into a Christmas winter wonderland. The bombs Santa used must have definitely been enhanced with Christmas Spirit.
The substance has much destructive potential...
Of interest is the late of the summary: Christmas Spirit can be generated through festive activities. Perhaps we could make Christmas Spirit through high quality rips?
Macaroni Time generated none, but Let it Go made at least 4 litres worth. All I Want For Christmas Is You generated more than twice that at a substantial 20 litres, but Snow halation generated a substantial 100 litres... !
A curious case, seeing as Snow halation's lyrics aren't even strictly Christmas-related.
Christmas Spirit is a very curious substance - we need to investigate further.
- The FILE uses both American and British English: "color" instead of "colour", but "litres" instead of "liters"
