'Tis the season to curl up in your stylish Christmas pajamas and watch tons and tons of holiday movies. Lucky for you, a brand new one is premiering tonight. You can catch web sensation Rudy Mancuso, music legend Mariah Carey, record producer DJ Khaled, music artist Alex Aiono and more star in The Keys of Christmas on YouTube Red.
Can't wait to see it? Same. That's why M caught up with Rudy to get the inside scoop on the exciting holiday special.
"It’s definitely not your generic, conventional Christmas special," Rudy tells us. "It’s the first time that I’ve been a part of something where I can showcase everything I know how to do and love to do – which is music, characters, comedy and storytelling."
Rudy goes on to tell us about the original music he created for the film. If Rudy's incredibly impressive music videos on social media are any indication, we think it's safe to say his original songs for the movie are going to some blow minds.
"I wrote two original songs for the project, which originally wasn’t a part of the vision," Rudy says. "I rushed to the studio a couple days before shooting, came up with something, rushed back to set in New York two days later, and then we made it. And that was kind of the beauty of this project is that any time I had a spontaneous idea, they never ruled it out."
Anything that Rudy's creative mind is a part of is sure to impress. The internet personality also says he bonded well with the cast, which was filled with quite a handful of iconic stars.
"I shared a lot of laughs with Mariah. We both happened to prefer the art of improv when it came to the scripts and our characters. We liked to just take what we read on the paper and just make it our own. So sometimes we couldn’t help but just start laughing because we went so far off from what the lines on the script actually were. As far as tips go, we talked a little bit about music."
So what are Rudy's Christmas plans with his lovely girlfriend Maia Mitchell, you ask? Well, he and the Teen Beach Movie star actually won't be spending the holidays together, but that doesn't mean they won't be able to see each other at all.
"We're usually apart during the holidays only because her family is in Australia, and she's usually there over the holidays. And I'm with mine either in Jersey or Brazil or Italy," he tells us. "I guess our holiday tradition is FaceTiming!"
Aww! Together or apart, we bet Maia will be tuning into "The Keys of Christmas" tonight to support her guy. Check out the teaser below!
