What better way to go into the 2018 holiday season than with a video made to lift anybody’s spirits? Happy Socks, the famed Swedish sock label known for its quirky socks, tapped music video director Tim Erem, choreographer Michael Rooney, and Game of Thrones and Narcos star Pedro Pascal to entertain you as Pascal tap dances his way into this holiday season with a music video appropriately titled Happy Holidays.
Happy Socks—the decade-old sock label which has worked with Snoop Dogg, Iris Apfel, The Beatles, and A$AP Rocky—put together an A-list team who has worked with major Grammy Award-winning musicians. Erem is the music video maestro who has worked on videos with superstars like Drake, Rihanna, Major Lazer, and Katy Perry. Rooney, a five-time MTV VMA-winning choreographer, has conceived of routines for Michael Jackson, Fatboy Slim, and Björk. As a classically-trained stage performer, Pascal, was the perfect choice to lead the video, showing that he could do more than just act, he can perform as a dancer as well.
“I’ve been a fan of Happy Socks for a long time, so it’s been amazing working on this short film: the crew, working with passionate and talented people like Tim, Michael, Viktor and the whole Happy Socks team while getting the chance to dance, a skill/ rarely get to focus on,” said Pascal.
