Goo Goo Dolls debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band debuted the video for its new single ‘You Ain’t Getting Nothin’‘ Thursday. ‘You Ain’t Getting Nothin’ is the fourth single from the band’s debut holiday album It’s Christmas All Over. Its premiere and that of its video follows that of the album’s singles: ‘Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,’ ‘Let It Snow‘ and ‘This is Christmas.
The animated video for ‘You Ain’t Getting Nothin” pays tribute to animator Chuck Jones and Warner Brothers’ classic holiday special How The Grinch Stole Christmas right down to the animation style. A comparison to the work of Jones’ counterpart Tex Avery is also noticeable in the production.
Along with the animated tributes to Chuck Jones and Tex Avery, there is also a tribute to the classic TV series The Brady Bunch in one of the video’s repeated sequences. Additionally, it should be noted here that there is one scene involving the video’s antagonist (a young boy) drinking what is clearly a bottle of beer as he drives Santa’s sleigh. In other words, some viewer discretion is advised.
Goo Goo Dolls’ new single is not to be confused with the classic song ‘I’m Gettin’ nuttin for Christmas,’ which was made popular by child actor Shirley Temple decades ago. Rather, Goo Goo Dolls’ song is its own original, unique composition. The song’s bluesy swagger and lyrical content is a presentation that is sure to entertain audiences easily.
The lyrical theme that accompanies the song’s catchy musical arrangement adds its own kick to the overall presentation and is just aimed at older audiences as the companion video that tells the song’s story.
