The maker of the PLANTERS® brand and MR. PEANUT® are feeling particularly nutstalgic this holiday season after many families spent a year apart and are teaming up with Reginald VelJohnson to shellebrate being able to come together again with loved ones for the holidays with a new music video.

The new music video, featuring original song “A Nutty Holiday,” throws it back to the grooves of past decades and features Reginald VelJohnson decking the halls, shoulder pads and all. As VelJohnson gets into the holiday spirit, he and the PLANTERS® brand remind fans that no matter how much the fads change throughout the years, what always adds substance to the holiday season is spending it with the ones you love and the nuts you crave.

“I’m excited to team up with the PLANTERS® brand to create the new music video, ‘A Nutty Holiday,’ to kick off the holiday celebrations,” said VelJohnson. “The video was a lot of fun to make and brought up a lot of memories of how I’ve celebrated the holidays throughout the years.
