Countdown to Christmas: Santa Claus does online banking (2020)

 You've probably seen this ad by now.

Edit, 12/29: The short video was deleted and privatized. This longer version allows Santa to do a little "Pulp Fiction" boogie.....

Yes, that's John Travolta under the whiskers, working with Samuel L. Jackson for the first time since "Pulp Fiction" back in the 90's. Jackson's been shilling for Capital One the last few years. staying in the public eye between movie gigs. Travolta making Santa sound hip is a means of keeping the jolly old elf relevant in the 21st century.

Wow! I had no idea that was John Travolta playing Mr. Kringle until you pointed that out, and I've seen that commercial a few times already.

It's been in the news, actually, that he & Jackson were working together for the first time in over 25 years.
