The Killers have shared their latest charity Christmas single, Christmas In L.A., whose proceeds will benefit the Global Fund to Fight AIDS. This is the eighth year that the Killers have partnered with (RED), the AIDS awareness organization founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver, to produce a Christmas single.
The Killers Christmas In LA
The Killers’ Christmas In LA was directed by Kelly Loosli (who is the program director of BYU’s animation program). The mixed media five minute and 12 second music video casts Owen Wilson as a melancholy out of work actor who is dreading December 25th in Los Angeles. I’m not sure if this is odd or perfect casting given Wilson’s suicide attempt in 2007 , which everyone seems to have forgotten. The lonesome video also features actor Harry Dean Stanton (below with Wilson) and animation by Loosli’s students at Brigham Young University.
Watch the video below, and head over to iTunes to purchase the song which features supporting vocals from Dawes.
