While you'd think a guy who rides a sleigh pulled by freaking flying reindeer would own a "hoverboard" that actually hovers, a new video appears to show that even Kris Kringle isn't immune to the ridiculous self-balancing scooter fad -- oh, and the inevitable consequences. Try not to laugh as this Santa -- carrying what looks like a sack of gifts -- zooms in from another room on the scooter only to lose his balance, crash into a doorframe, and tumble right into a beautiful Christmas tree. The result is a heap of tangled lights, broken ornaments, and yet another reason to lay off all those sugary Christmas cookies. The sound of "Jingle Bell Rock" in the background adds a nice touch.
