Dangerous Jobs: Mall Santa Claus gets beard tangled in elaborate entrance, stuck for forty minutes

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

A mall Santa was making his grand entrance in London where he was supposed to be lowered by cables onto the ground in front of a crowd of amazed children. Unfortunately, the poor guy ended up getting his beard tangled up in the cables and he didn’t quite make it. With a bit of improvisation, the announcer told the crowd that Santa was going to stay above the crowd to see who was naughty or nice. And when he came down, the man revealed he could have taken off the beard to free himself, but didn’t want to shatter the Christmas dreams of children in the crowd. Smart move?

“This guy had a fake beard, and God bless him. He’s coming down and he’s stuck up there for 40 minutes. And now imagine, this is the mall bringing him in and making a very big deal. So the mall is packed. Packed. Santa’s going to make an entrance. He comes out of the ceiling and starts to go down. Now he’s dangling over all of the kids and he’s like, ho, ho, ho, ho. Holy cow, we’re stuck. For 40 minutes he’s stuck there. And he could have taken off the beard and then enthusiasm could have continued to do it because it was his beard that was tangled and it was pulling up and coming off and he didn’t want to do it,” Glenn said.

“If that was me playing Santa, I would have taken off my beard so fast,” Pat said.

WATCH:

Things turned a little dark when Glenn put himself in the shoes of a frustrated parent who just wanted to have his kids take their Santa picture and leave. (Note to liberal media: All of the below was said with a LOT of sarcasm. Glenn is not in any way advocating the murder of the entangled mall Santa.)

“Let’s stop talking about Santa for a second and let’s start talking about the parents. You’re there in a crowd, screaming kids. I mean, I don’t want to stand in a line for Santa. I mean, it’s like, really? ou don’t wreck the magic of Santa stuff if you go see Santa and say ‘I just ‑‑ I just want the stupid picture’ because you’re supposed to take the stupid picture but I just, I have no patience for standing in the line that lasts forever and Santa’s always feeding his reindeer when you want to go and so you have to hang out at the mall a little longer and it’s just like, oh, for the love of Pete. So imagine now, you’re standing there for 40 minutes and Santa’s up in the air. you’re like, just shoot him down. I don’t care. Just get him down. Shoot him down. He’s wearing a red suit. We can still prop him up in the chair. You won’t notice it. It’s fine. Just get him down on the ground. I want to go home,” Glenn joked.

Glenn said you could go home, but would you really want to miss anything else that could go wrong? Would you listen to that little voice that says just maybe Santa could fall?

“What do you say we just go home? And then the voice inside says, ‘But wait a minute. Santa might fall. I mean, you’re going to miss that? That will be something you’d remember forever.’ And then be like, ‘But the kids would see it, too, and then you’d have to explain Santa fell to his death. It might wreck Christmas for all time. Yes, but if I got it on video at the right angle, I could win that $100,000 prize from video show that, I think that’s still on, isn’t it?’”

“A dark vision of the holidays,” Stu said.

    Says a lot about the guy playing Santa, he kept the magic alive for the sake of the kids.

    DC has outlawed Nativity scenes not vbecause they are anti Christian message, but because they cannot find 3 wise men though they have plenty of jackasses to fill the stabels.  They are also still looking for a virgin.

    Santa.  Give the little mongrels a piece of coal.  It’s even cheaper now since odumbass has destroyed the coal industry.  I think obama has a hatred for coal because  coal is black.  Not sure why it is so but BLACK coal is filthy in the eyes of liberals.

    I was thinking the same thing…how disappointing that would have been for those children that still believe, had he ripped off his beard.

    Having been Santa for a few years now, with my own home-grown beard, I feel  a certain kinship with this Santa. Another video shows him being rescued by another person on a cable, cutting his beard loose (yay!) but didn’t follow up. I applaud maintaining the persona, as it is very real to all concerned. And by all concerned, I mean not only Santa himself, but the children who have a strong stake in their expectations for Christmas.

    When I start out, I am no longer myself, a certain spirit overcomes me, and for all intents and purposes I *become* Santa, and feel a love for the simple faith of the children. I also ask them to give Mommy and Daddy a present — a hug and a love for Christmas. They agree, and get a bit of a boost for the real spirit of Christmas. 

    Ah, would that we could keep that spirit year ’round.

    On another pertinent note or two — “Remember Benghazi” and

    Since I neither know or respect you, I care nothing for your opinons. Pound sand. Life is good and I enjoy myself now as a result of good decisions and planning in life. I am very thankful to God for it and I have learned the secret of having a joyful heart in all circumstances. Life’s good people. Live it.
