Halloween: The Nightmare Before Christmas Read by Christopher Lee!

This has been kicking around for a few years, apparently, but I've never seen it before and I'm thrilled to see it now. The Nightmare Before Christmas was, famously, based on a poem Tim Burton wrote in 1982. That was released as a book, illustrated by Burton himself, and it's probably my favorite thing Burton has ever done. Here is a video, a partial animation of Burton's illustrations, with the poem itself read by Christopher Lee. Was this some kind of DVD extra, or something? Whatever it is, it's purely wonderful, and I'm thrilled to finally be seeing it. (And hearing it!)
