Next month sees the release of Sufjan Stevens’ massive Christmas-themed box set Silver & Gold: Songs for Christmas Volumes 6-10 — from which we’ve already heard ‘Christmas Unicorn‘ — and today he has released an unexpected new video for ‘Mr. Frosty Man’. The messy, brief number has been given a claymation-horror treatment by UK animator Lee Hardcastle — the man behind Claycat’s The Raid and Pingu’s The Thing — and it hilariously involves Frosty the Snowman, Santa Claus, a horde of ravenous zombies and a whole lot of gore.
Silver & Gold: Songs for Christmas Volumes 6-10 is out November 13. Watch the video for ‘Mr. Frosty Man’ below (via Stereogum).
