Ever since 2006 The Killers surprise us with a Christmas(sy) song. Details of their annual songs are allways revealed at the last moment, around december 1st. 'Christmas In LA'  marks the eighth consecutive year in which the band has released a Christmas song. As with their seven previous releases, all proceeds from this song goes to AIDS charities as part of the Product Red campaign.
The video is following a disillusioned actor stuck in LA. The actor in the video is Owen Wilson, joined here by a hard drinking Harry Dean Stanton. Switching between live action and animation the  clip even manages to slip in an animated cameo by Warren Zevon. The song is written by The Killers and Taylor Goldsmith from the LA-based band Dawes.
