Cuckmas Carols: Bald-headed Lies

 
Absolutely inspired cover art by Dr Smoothrod

In early 2016, Maddox began sponsoring episodes of The Best Debate in the Universe with a bonus episode for his podcast, and shortly after he began touting it as having topped the iTunes charts. After brief research by the community, it was found that the episode had been spliced into multiple tracks and uploaded to iTunes’ Comedy Album category, a relatively inactive category that is meant to be reserved for recordings of live stand-up. Asterios Kokkinos, a regular guest of The Dick Show, was inspired by this to create an especially low-quality album of Christmas covers that would beat Maddox’s position in the category and, as a result, show the ridiculousness of Maddox’s claims of having charted at #1.

Asterios Kokkinos submitted Cucksmas Carols: Bald-headed Lies - an album that was written and performed in less than 24 hours - for digital distribution on February 17, 2017. This included online storefronts such as iTunes, Google Play, and much, much more. The album was available on iTunes by February 20, 2017, and shared primarily within The Dick Show community via Reddit and Facebook. By February 22, 2017, it had reached #1 on iTunes’ Comedy Albums category - the same category as Maddox’s bonus episode - meaning Asterios had accomplished his goal.

The success of the album had gone further, however, reaching #10 on Billboard’s Comedy charts by February 28, 2017. In Episode 39, it was confirmed that Asterios had reached #6 in all of iTunes in Hungary and moved up to #7 on the Billboard Comedy charts.

The situation became even stranger when Billboard Magazine contacted him with questions so that they could add the album to their official, historical catalog.
