Unlike the previous two episodes, however, the dress of the people on camera clearly indicate this episode was filmed in cold weather. Thus, it is reasonable to assume that this episode was filmed around Christmas itself, rather than during the July production of A Christmas Carol. McDonnell's appearance is also radically more mature than that seen in the earlier episodes.
Aspects of production covered
This episode covered no aspect of production whatsoever. As the title suggests, the major focus of the episode was to have Charlie decorate a bus — in this case, the crew's lunch bus. It featured video of him going to a local store to buy Christmas decorations, and then showed him putting them up in time for a few members of the crew to arrive.
Charlie is shown conversing mainly with his cameraman, who is never seen in this episode.
