It really is beginning to look as if this year’s crop of American Idol semi-finalists are not the wholesome bunch they once seemed. First it was the David Hernandez stripper saga, then Ramiele’s saucy snaps and now an obscene video has surfaced starring Danny Noriega.

Apperently Danny posted the bizarre "Christmas message" on the video-sharing website in December 2006. In the 30 second clip Danny, dressed in full emo get-up with make-up and piercings, delivers a distinctly un-Christmassy, foul-mouthed rant.

Danny, from Azusa, CA., puts on a bored expression while festive music plays, then the song cuts as he yells: "Alright enough — stop!"

The 18-year-old, in sarcastic, disaffected youth mode, says: "OK, I’m just making a video — a Christmas video, because it’s almost Christmas! I want to wish you guys a merry Christmas and a happy New Year…"


Then he spits: "Alright, f*** that s***, I hope Santa Claus rapes your f*****g mother and I hope you all get coal because you are all pieces of s***!"

Nice! Danny Noriega, ladies and gentleman, booking now for weddings, bar mitzvahs and Christmas parties!

Here’s the clip, for those who are not easily offended!
