If you’ve been in any sort of retail establishment over the past week, you know that the push towards Christmas is already in full swing.
The decorations are out, the sales are on, and the Canadian pop stars are churning out charming music videos that recall classic holiday specials.
OK, so that third thing is new this year. Still, if you think Justin Bieber’s just-released Yuletide collection Under the Mistletoe isn’t going to be a cornerstone of our collective gingerbread-flavored memories for decades to come, then you get a fat lump of coal in your stocking.
The album is expected to debut at the top of the Billboard album chart (which gets published tomorrow), and Bieber already dropped the record’s second video. The first was for the cool, Christmas-sexy “Mistletoe,” but this one is old school in more ways than one. (As an aside, “Christmas-sexy” is the one of the most upsetting made-up adjectives ever unleashed on this blog, second only to “Bieberotic.”)
“Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” drops the Biebs into the universe of the classic Rankin-Bass television special Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town. Many reindeer games ensue and drumming penguins take center stage. Pour yourself some early eggnog and watch the clip below:
If you haven’t had your fill of Christmas-related music videos starring Justin Bieber, don’t fret, as his tag-team clip with Mariah Carey on her “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is coming very soon.
