British businesswoman and Dragon's Den star Deborah Meaden has teamed up with the Fussy deodorant brand to release an armpit fart version of Deck The Halls, which is now in the running for the UK's Christmas #1 single. 

The short music video stars a carolling group, The Fussy Pits, performing their unique version of the well-known holiday song at a random couple's front door. Meaden aims to top the chart this Christmas and raise money for charity.

Meaden first became acquainted with Fussy when the company appeared in Dragon's Den. She later decided to go into business with them, alongside her colleague and co-star Peter Jones, who invested in the deodorant brand. 

"The amount of single-use plastic we throw away every year is just silly. So why not a silly song to help provide a solution!" she told "Now more than ever is the time to be Fussy about the brands and products we choose to support."

The armpit fart Deck The Halls is now on all streaming services. Each download of the track will stop 1kg of plastic from entering the ocean in partnership with Plastic Bank.

Deck The Halls' music video sees a man ripping off the sleeve of his Christmas jumper before patting his armpit tunefully with his left hand. The woman at the door looks aghast as a second man lifts his arms and reveals that he has jingle bells attached to his armpit hair.

The two women in The Fussy Pits make somewhat melodious armpit farts and draw out a violin, completing the rendition of Deck The Halls. The couple at the door stares at the group in shock before they realise they're looking for money to go to charity.

The clip ends with Meaden herself giving one last armpit fart.

Christmas number ones are singles that land the top spot on the week of Christmas in the UK. They are often novelty, charity or holiday songs. The most recent Christmas #1 was 2021's Sausage Rolls For Everyone, a collaboration with YouTuber LadBaby, Elton John, and Ed Sheeran. The track is a remix version of John and Sheeran's Merry Christmas single, released two weeks beforehand. All proceeds went to The Trussell Trust, an NGO that aims to end the need for food banks in the UK.
