By now, you’ve probably already watched Christmas-favorite Elf over the holiday period, but chances are you’ve never seen the warm and fuzzy flick like this.

Much like Jon Favreau’s 2003 version, the Elf recut centers around Will Ferrell’s portrayal of Buddy the Elf, only this time around, Buddy isn’t quite as friendly as he is in the original.

“Taken as a child, tortured, twisted and broken,” things take a dark and unexpected turn when Buddy pays a visit to his father, Walter Hobbs. Things then come to a climax at the end of the clip when Buddy insists that his dad tuck him in one night.

To see how it all plays out, press play above.

Not NYC, not LA.
