Katy Perry, "Cozy Little Christmas"

Katy Perry has officially kicked off her "25 Days of Cozy" Christmas countdown with the music video for "Cozy Little Christmas." The popstar transforms into the sexy spinoff of Santa's righthand woman, Mrs. Claus, as they spend a rather tropical holiday together. 

The jolly couple are joined by caricatures inspired by the 1964 stop-motion animated TV-movie Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer as she surprises a Hawaiian shirt-clad Santa Claus with a razor scooter that hints at her latest single "Harleys in Hawaii." 

Laying poolside and at the massage parlor, Perry and Claus spend a fairly warm holiday "warming up their popsicle toes," until the singer spins around a martini glass dressed as a candy cane and gets tipsy off eggnog shots while featuring her ornate hairstyle.

Directing duo WATTS, comprised of Steve Aoki and Noah Cyrus, helmed the festive video. Perry co-wrote and -produced the track with Greg Wells, who also produced her 2009 Billboard Hot 100 No. 9 hit "Waking Up in Vegas," and Ferras Alqaisi, who co-wrote several songs off her fifth studio album Witness, which peaked atop the Billboard 200 in 2007. 

Watch her "Cozy Little Christmas" clip below.
