"Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire" Guy Singing also known as AnucAtittawan on Smule, Man Singing "Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire," the Chess Nuss Guy or Smule Couple Singing Christmas Songs, is a viral video of a male user on the karaoke app Smule named Anuc (@AnucAtittawan) singing Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song (Merry Christmas To You)" in which he mispronounces the lyrics. The video was uploaded in December 2022 and soon spread to TikTok, leading to humorous, phonetic translations and his insertion into exploitable video templates such as Yeah I'd Like To Solve The Puzzle. It was also faked by a Facebook user named Deborah-Ann McMann that Anuc was her Argentinian pen pal named Tomàs. Other videos from Anuc's Smule surfaced on TikTok thereafter, many of them being Christmas carols sung with a woman named 13336her (examples being "All I Want For Christmas Is You" and "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town").


In accordance with his Smule[2] profile's bio, AnucAtittawan's real name is Anuc and he lives in Italy. He is a prolific creator on Smule with over 16,700 followers and 122,000 recordings as of December 2022.

On December 9th, 2022, Smule[1] user AnucAtittawan posted a cover of the song "The Christmas Song" by Nat King Cole which has the primary lyrics "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Jack Frost nipping at your nose." Over the course of one week, the video received 557 plays and 44 loves (shown below, left). Later on the same day, Smule[3] user 13336hera posted a joint video with AnucAtittawan to the app in which they sang a duet of Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song." Over the course of one week, the video received 257 plays and 14 loves (shown below, right).

The video of 13336hera and AnucAtittawan's duet went viral on December 9th, 2022, when TikToker[4] heraloani reposted it to the platform, gaining roughly 1 million plays and 209,200 likes in one week (shown below). TikToker heraloani is also Smule user 13336hera and had a habit of reposting AnucAtittawan and her's videos, however, she didn't go viral until the "Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire" video. On December 19th, 2022, TikToker heraloani deleted the video.
