Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Welcome to Day 12 of our 12 Days of Celebrities Celebrating amicable holiday smackdown! Though there's still a few days before Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year's Eve are over, the celebrities —€”€”€” along with their pets, stalkers, and Instagram followers — €”€”€want you to know that they're already making the most of the occasion.

But only one celebrity can be having the Most Fun Ever (today). So far, winners have included Mariah Carey's Hallmark Christmas movie and Beyoncé dressing up as a literal Christmas tree, but here are your runners up and winner for the twelfth and final smackdown on Thursday, December 24rd:

Damn, have you ever been like what does Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's voice sound like in song? And then you find out on Christmas Eve, while he serenades his wee baby daughter in a reindeer onesie, that it sounds like heaven dipped in chocolate slowly roasted over a fire? And then there's some sort of weird "Santa is evil and this baby is badass" twist that you don't really follow, but it's alright because the sweet notes are still melting your heart and brain? That's what the Instagram above is.


The smooth-ass voice of a living saint/actor: 2,000,000

Really good baby: 500

Really good baby onesie: 500

Confusing Santa implications: 1500

Final score: 2,002,500

The Prize

In the tradition of the 12 Days of Christmas, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will receive "12 babies fighting Santa."

Congratulations to all our winners and to all our winners, a good night.
