Earlier this year, Carly Rae Jepsen treated us to her holiday tune "It's Not Christmas Till Somebody Cries," and now the Canadian pop queen has unveiled the song's accompanying Josh Forbes-directed music video.

Complete with an arguing family, an uncomfortable vegan boyfriend (played by songwriter CJ Baran) and Santa-suit-clad grandpa high on weed edibles, the clip brings a comedic conclusion to the tongue-in-cheek yuletide track.

"I love the old fashioned movies and the family traditions and the excitement of gifting presents and decorating the tree," Jepsen previously said of the single, "but each year the pressure to have the perfect Christmas always ends in tears. I call it Christmas versus expectation."

Last month, the singer announced her line of holiday merch, #CarlySleighJepsen, which includes ugly Christmas sweaters, monogram socks, beanies and more. 

Jepsen's latest follows her 2020 single "Me and the Boys in the Band," released back in August.
