Bitter Santa

Jolly old Saint Nick, he ain't.

Toronto-based Crush has released a series of three videos featuring Santa Claus. And it is Christmas, so that’s totally normal right? Not exactly, because the agency version of Father Christmas is a bombastic┬ámegalomaniac. From threatening young children to verbally abusing his elves, Santa rages from one profanity-laced tirade to another. While we can’t say for sure whether the folks at Crush had Toronto mayor Rob Ford in mind when they dreamed up this Saint Nick, it’s hard to think otherwise as the puffy-faced Santa rails at his elves for being on the “gravy train.” To be fair, Santa does run what is essentially the biggest one-man show on Earth. Who could blame him for letting some of that power go straight to his ample head.
