Owen Wilson To Star In The Killers’ New Christmas Music Video

The Killers have revealed in a new interview with Metro that actor Owen Wilson will be featured in the group’s upcoming music video for their upcoming Christmas song. Christmas in LA will be the eighth annual Christmas themed song by the Killers and will be released on December 1st in support of World AIDS Day. Killers frontman Brandon Flowers described the song as about a “struggling actor in LA who misses the traditional Christmas.”

Flowers also went praising the addition of Owen Wilson to the upcoming music video:

“We got Owen Wilson to do the video, and there are cameos from Harry Dean Staunton and an animated Warren Zevon, which is bad-ass. I’m so excited about it – talk about the stars aligning.”

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, from love stories to The Cowboy’s Christmas Ball and a Santa that’s out to getcha.”
