Trailer of the Day: I Am Santa Claus


Documenting an entire year in the lives of five real-bearded professional Santa Clauses to find out what the rest of the year is like for a man who perpetually looks like Jolly Saint Nick. In the process, they are shown for who they actually are, flawed, flesh and blood men who feel an overbearing responsibility to protect the integrity of the spotless, untarnished reputation of the ‘Red Suit.’ ‘I Am Santa Claus’ is a documentary that poses a question about a ubiquitous holiday figure that few parents ever ask themselves; ‘Whose lap is my child sitting on?’ – IMDb


The movie that posits the question, “Whose lap is your child sitting on?” and then goes on to tell you in very intimate detail. From the trailer it looks like America’s children are sitting on the laps of sex club workers, BBQ enthusiasts and worst of all insurance salesmen.
Thrown into the mix of the Morgan Spurlock documentary is former pro wrestler Mick Foley who embarks on his own journey to become an authentic Mall Santa.
I have to admit this thing looks like it will be pretty darn interesting and I will definitely add this to my Christmas day movie viewing list.
