There’s a new Santa Claus coming to town, and he’s cut the sleeves off his red fur coat.

On Wednesday’s Tonight Show, Will Ferrell dropped by in character as the bro-iest, bleach blond-iest, shorts-wearingest Santa Claus you ever did see, and he’s made a couple of changes to Santa Claus’ routine as we know it. 

Ferrel’s Claus is not into the whole reindeer-and-chimney thing — it’s just not his style. After all, “This is 2013 [sic], get with the prog!” This year’s presents will be delivered by drones, as long as you’re in the “drone zone.” All Santa Claus has to do is enter some numbers into a computer, and you’ve got “the special D from Mr. C. Case Claused.”
