It's not like Santa-themed slapstick is anything particularly new; if you had to count the number of times Tim Allen took a projectile to the nuts in the Santa Clause trilogy, you would probably get bored far before you finished, and then you would have to add at least one for the blistering nut-punch of Tim Allen's cruelly dying career. Even so, there's still something that's just funny about watching a fat guy in a Santa suit fall off a roof. Especially if that Santa appears to be fairly drunk.
Just a word of advice, though: This video is only funny until about 20 seconds in, and then the video keeps inexplicably rolling for another minute and a half or so, even though the joke is clearly over. Which, if you think about it, is also a lot like Tim Allen's career.
