Elliot paints an entertaining scenario in his new video for a reworking of the Christmas classic 'Baby It's Cold Outside' by She & Him, otherwise known as Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. Taken from their new collection of holiday tunes 'A Very She & Him Christmas', their acoustic rendition of the song flips the traditional boy/girl dynamic of the lyrics around to give the story a surprising twist, paving the way for Elliot's resplendent visual interpretation.
He transforms the singers into charming two-dimensional cartoon lookalikes, envisioning the song's flirtatious and mildly ominous dialogue with a cheeky dose of humour. Surrounded by a wintry landscape rendered in a vivid, textural style by background designer Tom Clohosy Cole, the wide-eyed and vixenish Deschanel goes to great lengths to prevent a skittish M. Ward from escaping a cosy-looking cabin though a series of delightfully elaborate stunts. She's enthusiastic, he's reluctant, but with a little bit of mistletoe and a whole lot of snow, things are set to turn around.
