Gimme All Your Presents: ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons debuts music video for new holiday tune "Jingle Bell Blues"

ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons is a sharp-dressed Santa in a new animated video for his recently released holiday tune "Jingle Bell Blues," which premiered today on his official YouTube channel.

The clip features a cartoon Gibbons donning a Santa Claus outfit as he embarks on a snowy adventure to deliver presents in a hot rod that's been converted into a flying sleigh. Along the way he rocks out on his new Christmas tune with help from a harmonica-playing snowman.

"The animators put me in a hot rod that looks suspiciously like our very own '34 Ford-based 'Whiskey Runner' though they've made some few seasonal adjustments," Billy explains of the video. "There's considerable snowfall so the wheels are replaced midway by a set of skis and now there's a pickup bed in the back so gifts can rain down from it. They have me doing a header into a chimney but it's not clear if I get to to enjoy any cookies and milk for my efforts."

As previously reported, "Jingle Bell Blues" is 12-bar-blues-infused version of the Christmas classic "Jingle Bells" that's available now as a digital download and via streaming services. A limited-edition seven-inch vinyl single pressed on red-translucent vinyl will be released on December 10.

The disc, which you can pre-order now at Gibbons' official online store, comes with an old-school vinyl center hole adapter with "Billy F Gibbons" written on it. The single's flip side features an etching of a whitewall tire.
