Run the Jewels cap off the year with a new video for “Walking in the Snow.”
The clip, directed by Chris Hopewell, shows the duo as ass-kicking action figures who lead a toy rebellion against an evil ice king. It’s like a dark spin-off to Toy Story that Disney/Pixar wouldn’t dare to make.
“It was great to work with the RTJ guys again,” Hopewell said in a statement. “Everyone was very aware of the gravity of the subject matter and RTJ didn’t want to be too obvious or on the nail with the visuals, so we went with an Eighties style fantasy look with evil snow warriors and their icy king oppressing the bedroom toys. It was great to be involved with a project with a positive vibe to end a pretty fucked-up year.”

Recently, Run the Jewels teamed up with Royal Blood for “The Ground Below (Royal Remix).” The duo’s critically acclaimed album, RTJ4, was released back in June of this year.
