WATCH: Kristen Bell Gets Animated For “Text Me A Merry Christmas” Music Video
Kristen Bell and the a cappella group Straight No Chaser released their modern-day Christmas song, “Text Me A Merry Christmas,” a little more than two weeks ago, and now a music video for it has been released. In the video, Bell is animated and naturally texting a lot with a guy. She even takes a few selfies of herself by a roaring fireplace and her Christmas tree, as well as with Santa after he comes down the chimney.
Among the song’s fun lyrics are “Text me a Merry Christmas/Let me know you care,” and “Just a word or two of text from you/Will remind me you’re still there.” The song also touches on such important texting topics as picking out the best emojis and why sending a text is better than a Facebook message or a tweet. “Text Me A Merry Christmas” also notes that leaving a holiday voicemail is just a thing from “Christmas past.”
During a recent talk with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, Bell said the song was “so much fun to record,” adding, “I’m excited to be a part of what could be a Christmas classic for our current generation.”
