(Holiday!) Video of the Moment #2243: She & Him

By on Wednesday, 14th December 2016 at 10:00 am

Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, known collectively as alt-pop duo She & Him, started preparing early for this year’s Christmas season. They released a new holiday-themed album called ‘Christmas Party’ way back at the end of October, before the traditional trick-or-treat festivities had even come to a close. However, I suspect you might forgive their mild over-enthusiasm for the Christmas season when you see the album’s adorable first video release.

‘Winter Wonderland’ is the second single from ‘Christmas Party’, following ‘Happy Holiday’, and it finds Deschanel and Ward once again in blissfully perfect harmony. Ward’s simple, classic acoustic guitar and pedal steel arrangement of the song leaves plenty of room for Deschanel’s vocals—enough room, in fact, for rocker Jenny Lewis to join the cozy mix. But rather than featuring the three musicians, the song’s promo video stars an irresistible group of festively fashionable pugs. Even if you’re not a dog lover, this combination of aural and visual confectionery, directed by Pupstar Sonoma, is sure to put you in a holiday frame of mind.


She & Him’s 2016 holiday album ‘Christmas Party’ is out now on Columbia Records. TGTF’s previous coverage of She & Him is back here.
