Few acts have been quite so committed to Christmas songs over the years as The Killers, with often excellent results, and this year is no different.

They've unveiled their festive effort for this yuletide and, this time, they've enlisted the 'help' of Jimmy Kimmel to help record their song Joel, The Lump of Coal.

It's a heart-warming tale of a small piece of anthracite, taken onto Santa's sleigh for a special mission. Watch the brilliant full video below, including some excellent backing vocals from Joel's cousins; we dare you not to feel thoroughly festive by the end.
