Brad Paisley Shows Off Hilarious ‘Avengers’-Inspired Elf on the Shelf for Christmas 2020

by Jennifer Shea

Country star Brad Paisley is getting into the holiday spirit with an “Avengers”-inspired Elf on the Shelf Instagram post.

Instead of going with the now-familiar formula, “You’ve heard of Elf on the Shelf, but have you heard of…,” Paisley posted a video with dramatic theme music and a room full of action figures.

Brad Paisley Shares ‘Elfsemble’

“Avengers… Elfsemble,” Paisley posted. “Move over Iron Man. Meet… Iron Elf. And friends.”

In posting a sendup of the Elf on the Shelf tradition, Paisley joins country music celebrities from Reba McEntire to Billy Ray Cyrus to Jake Owen.

Paisley had previously posted an Instagram video featuring a crew of miniature elves clad in camouflage. The elves hide behind foliage in Paisley’s home waiting for a pack of golden ceramic deer to pass them by. Then they take down the deer.

This new video appears to be Paisley’s latest take on the Elf on the Shelf. There’s no telling how many videos he intends to post this holiday season. But he certainly seems to be kicking his creativity into high gear with each installment.

That’s not the only Elf on the Shelf effort Paisley has joined. He’s also participating in “The Elf on the Shelf’s Night Before Christmas Storytime,” sponsored by The Lumistella Company. The show launched Dec. 2 on YouTube.   

“Around our house, the Christmas season is full of family time and fun traditions,” Paisley said in a statement. “One of my favorites is waking up every morning to discover what kind of happiness and hoopla The Elf on the Shelf Scout Elves got into while we were asleep. Our Scout Elves, Snowflake and Pinocchio, know how to make the holidays a time of joy, celebration and craziness.”

It looks like Paisley has added a few new elves to his household this year.
