Christmas Isn't Christmas music video out now

 Bon Jovi's first original holiday song in three decades dropped last month, and now the official music video for "Christmas Isn't Christmas" has been released!

It's enough to warm even my Grinchy heart, lol. Check it out:

The video features everyone in the current lineup at a bar decked out in Christmas lights. (I think it's Santa's Pub in Nashville, someone correct me if I'm wrong.) There is a bit of a visual hierarchy in a place -- Jon singing on his own; the old-timers in David Bryan, Tico Torres and Hugh McDonald having a drink together; then the relative newbies, Phil X, playing guitar and having a laugh with Everett Bradley and John Shanks.

Interspersed with all of that are various people singing karaoke, enjoying festivities with loved ones or drowning their sorrows alone. Pretty decent reflection of Christmas if I do say so myself -- it's a great time for some, and depressing AF for others. 

I really like the song and the video (though it's summer at Christmastime where I live). What do you think?
