Nothing says happy holidays quite like that great old standard, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”
Last year Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, performing as She & Him, released A Very She & Him Christmas. The duo’s album is packed full of holiday songs like “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” “Sleigh Ride,” and “Silver Bells.”
To keep the Christmas spirit alive, the pair have just released an animated video for “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” It’s not Zooey’s first experience with the song — you might remember her shower scene in 2003’s Elf, with WIll Ferrell, where she also sang the Christmas favorite.
In the video, the pair are stuck in a snowbound cabin and Ward is wishing to escape the seductive and aggressive Deschanel. His attempts to flee fail and Ward eventually returns with a mistletoe.
