This gem comes thanks to James Dart, who tweeted it yesterday. Presumably filmed on location at his grotto, Santa’s got Dasher, Dancer and the rest of the lads on double training sessions in preparation for Saturday night’s trip.

Considering his footwork is reminiscent of one Gabriel Obertan, we reckon this little fella might get a game at Newcastle.
