The band cast Hollywood actor Owen Wilson in the accompanying music clip. "We got Owen Wilson to do the video, and there are cameos from Harry Dean Stanton and an animated Warren Zevon, which is bad-ass. I'm so excited about it - talk about the stars aligning," frontman Brandon Flowers told UK newspaper The Metro
He continued: "You'll never see us smile or let our hair down as much as when we do the Christmas stuff. It always turns out to be a lot of work but it's really refreshing. What's nice is that it happens to coincide with World AIDS Day, which is December 1, so it made sense to write Christmas songs to raise money for Red Project.
"This is our eighth year without doing any covers and we've done all types of Christmas songs," Flowers added, "from love stories to 'The Cowboys' Christmas Ball
', and a Santa that's out to getcha."
