A hilarious clip shot in South Africa shows Santa's failed entrance at Bakoven Beach in Cape Town. The jolly man was hopping out of his boat when he slipped and tumbled onto the beach. His customary "ho-hos" were suddenly interrupted by a "whoa!" as he tumbled onto the shore head over heels, triggering a barrage of laughter from onlookers.
Here is a video shot from inside the boat to give you more perspective.
Let us hope that Santa's gift sack remained undamaged, and all the children got what they wished for.
