Psst… I received a very strange email in the wee hours of the morning – containing a few photos and a copy of a hush-hush video – and it was simply too good not to share.
I admit I’m a little nervous about posting this on my site, as it involves a certain celebrity, a stealth paparazzi, and likely a situation that a jolly ol’ PR team would like to keep under wraps. Here’s some photographic evidence of what went down last night:
If you’re thinking, “Gee, that looks like Santa!”… you’d be correct. And wouldn’t you know it, I spy his trusted reindeer, look less than impressed. Confused? Yeah me too.
And then I watched this video. It involves a *slightly* out-of-commission sleigh, and even though the details are fuzzy, I’m beginning to form a hypothesis on what happened last night. Take a peek – just make sure no kiddos are around. We don’t want to compromise Santa’s reputation, of course.
Okay, so it’s pretty obvious we have visual confirmation that it is indeed Santa Claus. And, it looks like he needed a little help last night from the Canadian Tire Auto Service experts. For more than 90 years, Canadian Tire has been providing Canadians with what they need to accomplish the jobs and joys of the holidays and everyday life. Today, they continue to evolve along with their customers – even when their customers are from the North Pole.
Yet, I just couldn’t let this go. Because our presents were indeed under our tree this morning; hence, even though it looks like he had a little trouble, eventually Santa was on his merry (pun intended) way. But then, I realized that this wasn’t so far-fetched; as Canada’s Christmas store, Canadian Tire has always focused on making the holidays as stress-free as possible. And that includes fixing Santa’s sleigh to ensure all presents would be delivered on time.
I suppose we can begin speculating now. How did Santa’s sleigh break down? Was there an accident involved… and if so, who else was flying though the skies on Christmas Eve? The reindeer looked a little sheepish… or are they hiding something? I certainly hope this accident was not the result of texting and flying!
Regardless, this Christmas, I’m sending thanks to Canadian Tire, and the Auto Service experts, for getting Santa back on track to make his annual delivery. From decorating to entertaining and shopping for gifts, Canadian Tire is a great place for Canadians on a tight timeline and even tighter budget. And, they just happen to know how to repair a Model NP2000 Sleigh, too.
