Last week, The Killers revealed that Owen Wilson would be in the band’s music video for this year’s Christmas track from them, “Christmas in L.A.”
For the past seven years, the band have put out tracks in partnership with (RED), the organization founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver, with 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale going to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS.
The video starts with Owen Wilson asking the voice of Harry Dean for some advice for “someone trying to make it.” The mystical voice goes on to tell him just to do nothing. Fast forward to Wilson waking up on Christmas morning by himself with his Charlie Brown like tree with a small disco ball ornament and looking at a lonely Christmas card. His world then turns into animation, much like the Christmas card he sadly, looks upon.
Check out the full video, no matter how sad it seems.
But the Christmas track is not the only piece of Killers news to hit the web today. It was also confirmed that the Vegas-based band would be performing on the U.K.’s X-Factor finale alongside the likes of Elton John, One Direction and Katy Perry. The show will be going out with a bang this season with the finalist and the performers all taking the stage at Wembley Arena during a live broadcast on ITV.
The Killers are set to perform “Mr. Brightside” and “Humans” on the show on December 14.
