The Killers join a number of celebrities who celebrate the upcoming music video with new song and music video. The band fronted by Brandon Flowers release a festive clip to support their new holiday song "Cowboys' Christmas Ball". They are joined by two alien robots which show up to save the day when some bandits come to town.
"Cowboys' Christmas Ball" contains slightly-changed lines from the 1890 poem of the same name by William Lawrence Chittenden. It's recorded by the Killers for their digital mini album "(RED) Christmas [EP]" which is released to benefit Product Red campaign and the fight against AIDS in Africa.
Before being put into music by the Killers, "Cowboys' Christmas Ball" was recorded by Michael Martin Murphey for his 1991 album "Cowboy Christmas: Cowboy Songs II".
