The Killers’ Owen Wilson-Starring Christmas Video Kicks Off the Holiday Season

December 2, 2013 By:

It’s officially the holiday season. Not because you’ve finally completed digeting that turkey baby you’ve been harboring since Thursday, or because you spent too much on Black Friday, or because it’s Cyber Monday and now you’re spending too much all over again. It’s officially the holiday season because The Killers have released their new single, “Christmas in L.A.,” featuring Dawes.

Christmas-themed singles are tradition for the Las Vegas-born squad. Starting eight holidays ago, The Killers have dropped an eggnog-flavored track each year to support the fight against AIDS. Released in partnership with Bono's (RED) organization, all proceeds of the track will be donated to the Global Fund.

Watch a video for “Christmas in L.A.” below. Long story short: it's pretty grim. Owen Wilson stars and he will not be home for the holidays. Instead, he’ll spend it in a bar, smalltalking with Harry Dean.
