Crosstown Building Inspires Local Band for Christmas Video

Deering and Down, a duo of local folk musicians Lahna Deering and Rev. Neil Down, has put together a video using stills of the Sears Crosstown building that they’ve animated with colorful Christmas imagery.

The animation project features the band’s song, “I Wonder What Elvis or Rufus Might Say.” Elvis and Rufus make an appearance at the 2:29 mark.

“We worked with our friend Matteo Servente trying to get everyone in the mood for this festive time of the year,” Deering said.

And to top it all off, the Sears Crosstown redevelopment team actually didn’t have anything to do with it.

“Cool seeing the local arts community start to use the building as inspiration in a grassroots way,” said Kerry Hayes, director of public relations for doug carpenter & associates LLC.

    Oh, so it’s REVEREND dude who sewed up a hopeful hottie. I won’t even call a Catholic priest “Father.” Cuz’ he ain’t.

      It’s a symbolic “father,” but I think you have to be inculturated slowly to be able to accept it. It’s probably like Arsenic: A drop here, a drop there…pretty soon you hardly know you’re being poisoned.

    The song is sung to “you,” and I am wondering if the you is what is shown in the animations: Santa Claus, the snowman, the ice-skating elf, Elvis, the soldiers or one the band members (and is that Isaac Hayes in the yellow shorts?!). I love the video, and I can’t help but think someone should put the building in a creepy video game.
