In last week’s Music Spotlight we showcased one of our favorite holiday albums, Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward’s collaborative, A Very She & Him Christmas. This week we find our video of the week coming from the same talented duo with their animated music video release to one of the album’s most amusing holiday tracks, Baby It’s Cold Outside.
Throwback pop duo She & Him are thawing out some cuts from last winter’s A Very She & Him Christmas, specifically their take on classic, and kind of creepy, yuletide sizzler “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” which has just received a new animated video treatment.
M. Ward plays the escapee, trying to escape from a very determined Zooey Deschanel, but he ends up sticking around to swig sips of cabernet once a series of snow-related disasters prevent him from driving home. There’s a bit of a Misery-styled twist to the proceedings, though. We’re pretty sure no one would mind all that…
You can check out the series of fortunate events, including an alcoholic fever dream that lands Ward crotch-first onto a series of frost-flecked evergreen branches, down below.
