CINCINNATI--()--The holidays stink. Don’t get us wrong, the holidays are a really wonderful time of year… family, friends, parties and gifts. But, while we see images of sugar plums and perfect holiday décor, the truth is the holidays are filled with a bevy of holiday stinks. Febreze has reinvented the classic holiday tune, “The 12 Days of Christmas,” to showcase the stinks of the season and how to stay guest ready, with the debut of “The #12Stinks of Christmas” starring the hilarious duo, Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison.

While every holiday host yearns to be perfect, many people inadvertently neglect the holiday stinks that surround them as the endless cycle of guests commences. Whether it’s 11 guests using one bathroom, eight uncles belching after a big meal or your three musty stockings pulled down after a year in the attic, it can be one of the most odorous times of year. With a limited edition holiday product line, Febreze can help.

“Sure, it’s always great to see family; it’s great to walk into a kitchen and smell a pie in the oven,” said actress Jane Lynch. “But when the turkey’s burning and your bathroom is seeing a lot of foot traffic from party guests, it hits you: the holidays stink! And, Febreze is a great solution to eliminate odors and stay guest ready.”

Just as New York City is evolving into the epicenter of holiday cheer, Lynch and Morrison will premier their music video during the Febreze #12Stinks of Christmas Party – ugly Christmas sweaters all – at LightBox. Attendees can expect to sing along to the kitschy tune and learn that they can be guest-ready all season long with Febreze through interactive product demos.

“It is so amazing to work with Jane again. We always have such an amazing time together, and recording this holiday duet for Febreze was no exception,” said Matthew Morrison. “Hopefully our song will teach a few hosts and hostesses how to survive the many guests they have during the holidays. Febreze will get you through it!”

The soon-to-be holiday classic, “The #12Stinks of Christmas,” will be available all season long on Febreze’s YouTube channel: The video also includes a special cameo appearance by the world-famous, four-legged social media star @ItsDougThePug.

Febreze can turn anyone into the host-with-the-most by removing countless odors in the home with festive product offerings like: Air Effects (Jolly Pine and Cranberry Cheer), Car Vent Clips (Jolly Pine and Cranberry Cheer) and Fabric Refresher (Cranberry Cheer). Because Febreze contains proprietary malodor elimination technologies, its products have the ability to truly eliminate odors and replace them with a light, fresh holiday scent.
