Well? What did you think Bob Dylan’s “Must Be Santa,” the first video off his latest album, Christmas in the Heart, was going to look like? We’re guessing that even in your wildest imaginings, you did not come up with the reality: the great Dylan bopping around his house in a Santa hat, while an accordion provides a cheerful polka beat.
This is the first time Bob Dylan has appeared in one of his own music videos since 1997, and it’s for a good cause: He’s pledged that all U.S. sales of Christmas in the Heart— his 47th album, which has 15 tracks of holiday tunes, including “Winter Wonderland,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “Little Drummer Boy”—will benefit Feeding America, which will help provide more than four million meals to more than 1.4 million people in need during this season. Now that’s the holiday spirit!
