Goo Goo Dolls Debut New Chuck Jones Inspired Animated Music Video for “You Ain’t Getting Nothin'”
Goo Goo Dolls have unveiled a brand-new music video for their track “You Ain’t Getting Nothin’,” one of two brand new original songs from the band’s first-ever festive album It’s Christmas All Over (Warner Records). Directed by Juan M. Urbina of Venturia Animation Studios, the video pairs vibrant cartoon imagery with the song’s swing jazz sound, making for a retro visual that hearkens back to the classic animated Christmas movies of yesteryear. Buzzfeed premiered the video earlier today HERE saying “the music video for it is a great throwback to Chuck Jones–style cartoons, particularly the 1966 cartoon classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (Which I’m kinda nerding out over.)”
Singer John Rzeznik said “This is our homage to the classic Christmas music and cartoons we all grew up watching. I don’t know about you, but I’ll take any chance I get to feel like a kid again for a little bit.”
In addition to “You Ain’t Getting Nothin’,” It’s Christmas All Over is filled with iconic songs such as “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” “Let It Snow.” Nearly all of the songs from It’s Christmas All Over are currently charting at AC radio, including the brand new original “This Is Christmas” which has stormed into the top 10 and continues to rise.” The album is available via all digital streaming platforms HERE.
The music video for “You Ain’t Getting Nothin'” arrives hot on the heels of two incredible television performances for Goo Goo Dolls this past week. The band first performed “This Is Christmas” during the famed Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC, they also took the stage at Christmas In Rockefeller Center on NBC to deliver stirring renditions of “Let It Snow” and “This Is Christmas”. Next up, frontman John Rzeznik will visit Live With Kelly and Ryan on ABC for an intimate live performance on December 4th at 9:00 AM Local Time.
Last week, the band officially announced their forthcoming augmented reality movie musical It’s Christmas All Over, presented by the live streaming platform FanTracks. Set to premiere live on FanTracks at midnight GMT on December 12th, It’s Christmas All Over will feature Goo Goo Dolls performing music from their brand-new festive album of the same name for the very first time.
