She & Him 'Baby Its Cold Outside' by Elliot DearShe & Him 'Baby Its Cold Outside' by Elliot Dear3She & Him 'Baby Its Cold Outside' by Elliot Dear2 A classic Christmassy tune given an indie-acoustic makeover, some splendid old school cartoon animation, and a girl who know what she wants... it's Elliot Dear's charming and very entertaining video for Baby It's Cold Outside' by She & Him, otherwise known as Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. While Zooey and M's rendition of the song flips the original boy/girl dynamic around, Elliot transforms the singers into two-dimensional cartoon lookalikes in a MGM cartoon version of an MGM musical, and interprets the song's flirtatious and slightly ominous lyrics with a cheeky dose of humour. Zooey becomes a seasonal vamp praying on the skittish Mr Ward, preventing him from escaping their cosy cabin to the wintry landscape beyond (the work of background designer Tom Clohosy Cole) with a series of elaborate stunts. But with a little bit of mistletoe, things are set to turn around...
