Remember Dan Levy, the hilarious host of The Hills Aftershow? Well, Levy's been busy with lots of projects following the cancellation of the MTV faux-reality series—and one of our favorite new Dan Levy YouTube shorts is this one, above, where he visits an acting coach to learn how to react politely to receiving, um, unfortunate gifts. Best quote ever? "You just can't bring fuck you into Christmas."
