IF HOLIDAYS WERE REAL is the last regular Smosh video of 2011, and the ninth installment of Smosh's "If [blank] Were Real" series.
After Ian complains about St. Patrick's Day because he has to wear a leprechaun costume, Anthony asks him how stupid it would be if holidays were realistic.
Anthony tells Ian to hurry up, which makes Ian groan as he walks into the living room wearing a lepurachan costume and comment how dumb St. Patrick's Day is. He then asks if Irish people even believe in "this stupid leprechaun crap." Anthony says all holidays were like that and asks Ian how stupid it would be if holidays were actually realistic.
Santa Claus (played by Anthony) is stuck in the chimney and starts cursing before the fireplace turns on and burns the wood and Santa's feet.
Billy (Ian) and his friend (Anthony) are enjoying their Easter Egg hunt when Billy wonders where the eggs come from. The boys hear groaning from around the corner and go see where the sound is coming from. They find the Easter Bunny squatting over the ground and pooping the Easter Eggs out. He greets them by saying, "Happy Easter!" Billy's friend is so shocked from this realization that he regurgitates the jelly beans that he was eating.
Miles Standish (Ian) is telling a couple of Wampanoag Natives that they can work together to benefit all of the people, but he is talking as if they don't speak English. Squanto asks the Chief, Massasoit (Anthony), why he is talking like that, and Massasoit responds by saying that the pilgrim might be mentally challenged. Squanto thought that it was the same reason for the stupid hats the male Pilgrims wear.
An excited Billy (wearing a Pikachu costume) runs into the living room and dumps out all his candy on the ground. His mom tells him to check each piece before he eats one becuase there might be razor blades inside it. However, Billy doesn't believe her and starts to eat a piece of candy. Blood immediately starts to spray from Billy's mouth.
A girl says she wants to make out with someone and blame it on being drunk.
Chinese New Year
A Chinese girl says in Chinese that she wants to make out with someone and blame it on being drunk.
A teacher, Mr. Ball (Ian), nervously tells his class that "Christopher Columbus definitely intended to find America, he definitely found America first, and he definitely wasn't responsible for the savage murder of all the natives." An Italian student dressed as Colombus (Anthony) is pointing a gun at Mr. Ball, saying with an evil tone, "Good... good..."
Anthony and a girl are sitting on a bench, telling each other how much they love each other, while Ian is standing by with the "Forever Alone" face, feeling "Forever Alone."
Anthony's dad (portrayed by a perverted guy) asks Anthony what he got for him for Mother's Day, but Anthony points out that he's not his mom. However, he reveals to be wearing lipstick and asks Anthony, "Or am I?" Later, the man tells his friend that he's getting a Mother's Day and a Father's day gift this year before jumping for joy.
Anthony gives Ian his birthday cake, and Ian asks Anthony to sing the Happy Birthday to him. Anthony starts to sing, but his singing is bleeped because the audio was removed due to a copyright claim.
April Fools' Day
Anthony looks at Ian's dead body with a bloody knife in his hand. Sgt. Anous comes in to arrest him. Anthony nervously looks at the calender to see that April 1st is circled and says, "April fools!" Sgt. Anous laughs and tells Anthony to "have a nice day." ("MURDERRIFIC!")
Ian admits that holidays would be dumb if they were real. He tells Anthony that he's gonna go and pinch some people for not wearing green before he pinches Anthony and runs away. As he is walking out of the house, he spots a leprechaun talking on the phone, catches him, and demands him to take him to his gold.
The leprechaun takes Ian to a white van labeled FREE GOLD (formerly labled FREE CANDY) and pushes him inside. After the leprechaun gets in, Ian starts screaming in pain as the van bounces up and down, making it seem as though Ian is being raped. It is then revealed that the leprechaun was pouring gold coins into Ian's hands, and the gold is hurting his hands. The leprechaun tells him that at least he got some free money, in which Ian happily agrees. A song plays, "Always trust a man in a big white van!"
Billy makes his first appearance in a long time since the X-Mas trilogy back in 2009.
The birthday deleted scene is the second time Smosh references the Happy Birthday song being copyrighted. The first time was the Shut Up! Opening in the video Ian's Birthday.
The April Fools' Day scene could possibly be a parody of HOW TO COVER UP A MURDER; Anthony murdered Ian in both videos. If it WAS an actual parody and or scene, it would've had Sgt. Anous say "BULLSH*T!" and shoot Anthony.
Also in this scene after Sgt. Anous left it said murderous like in How-To Videos.
This is the last regular Smosh video of 2011, not counting the end-of-year remix.
The leprechaun's white van is really a U-Haul Van with the information on the side of it digitally edited to say "FREE GOLD" on the side of the truck
This is the second episode of the If [blank] Were Real series where lan and Anthony aren't watching TV. Anthony is sitting on the couch in his normal spot, but is not watching TV. The first time was on If The Internet Was Real, where they are watching a video on YouTube.
The same Easter Bunny costume used in this episode appears in the 2009 video, Anthony's Death, being worn by Ian.
Ian and Anthony both mention how the Irish believe in leprechauns, when they really believe in St. Patrick.
Both Billy and his friend are wearing Nintendo themed shirts that say "Bring it On."
According to the Extras on Smosh.com, the Valentine's Day scene was digitally edited to allow lan's "Forever Alone" face.
When Mr. Ball is being forced to say that Christopher Columbus was not responsible for murdering the Native Americans, he was actually correct due to other settlers like Cortés murdering other Native Americans like the Aztecs, but Columbus intended to find India, and Vikings found the Americas a few hundred years before Columbus.
