Never in a million years would you imagine ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and 'Star Trek' star William Shatner perform a Christmas number together.

The duo amped up the classic 'Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer' in a new video to promote the new Shatner LP, Shatner Clause: The Christmas Album. The album also features other prominent musicians such as members of Jethro Tull, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Cars, Henry Rollins and Iggy Pop.

Released by Cleopatra Records, the album was dubbed a "very special gift of the holidays – the first ever Christmas album from the godfather of dramatic musical interpretations and a legend of stage and screen."
