iDKHOW got into the Christmas spirit early this year with the surprise release of their holiday-themed EP Christmas Drag just last week. The three-song EP dropped Friday, which included the title track “Christmas Drag,” “Merry Christmas Everybody” and “‘Oh Noel.”

Today, the rock duo released a festive home-movie themed music video for their cover of the Slade track “Merry Christmas Everybody.”

The music video was filmed by vocalist/ bassist Dallon Weekes, which focuses on him singing in a chair with drummer Ryan Seaman sitting next to him. Seaman seems to not move a muscle the entire duration of the video.

Weekes previously opened up to AltPress on the production process for music videos off this EP.  

“We did shoot some music videos over the course of a day at my home with this 30-plus-year-old VHS camera shot it all on videotape and have my family come over and help out and did some just little simple one shot, one take sort of lyric videos for the songs,” Weekes says.

iDKHOW “Merry Christmas Everybody” lyrics

Are you hanging up your stocking on your wall?
It’s the time when every Santa has a ball
Does he ride a red-nosed reindeer?
Does a ton-up on his sleigh?
Do the fairies keep him sober for a day?
So here it is,
Merry Christmas
Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now
It’s only just begun
Are you wanting for the family to arrive?
Are you sure you’ve got the room to spare inside?
Does your grandma always tell ya that the old songs are the best?
The she’s up and rock and rollin’ with the rest
So here it is,
Merry Christmas
Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now
It’s only just begun

What will your daddy do when he sees your mama kissin’ Santa Clause?
Ah-ha
Are you hanging up your stocking on your wall?
Are you hoping that the snow will start to fall?
Do you ride on down the hillside in a buggy you have made?
When you land upon your head then you’ve been slayed
So here it is,
Merry Christmas
Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now
It’s only just begun
So here it is,
Merry Christmas
Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now
It’s only just begun
