Sugarland Creates A Claymation Christmas

Our Country

Feeling a bit Scrooge-y this holiday season? Sugarland has the perfect cure. I dare you to watch the duo's brand-new video, premiering here on Yahoo! Music, and not get in at least a somewhat festive mood.

Jennifer and Kristian don't actually appear in their clip for "Winter Wonderland." However, you'll see an Elvis-impersonating snowman, a breakdancing reindeer, and a cast of other ridiculously cute little characters jiving along to Jen's boppy rendition of the holiday standard. The entire video is done in claymation and it'll remind you of those adorable Rankin-Bass Christmas specials you loved as a kid--Rudolph, Frosty, The Year Without A Santa Claus. (No, Snow Miser and Heat Miser do not make an appearance, but I'm putting in my vote for them for future video treatments.)

The video is in support of Sugarland's new and first Christmas album, Gold And Green, which hit the streets in mid-October and features five traditional holiday classics as well as five original songs fit for the season.

There's another video reportedly coming, done in the same vein, for the tune "Nuttin' For Christmas." Stay tuned and we'll have it here for you soon.

In the meantime, don't have a blue Christmas--watch "Winter Wonderland" right now, and get happy, durn it!
