Posted on

Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryIt’s an election year at the North Pole, and the campaign to replace the current jolly incumbent is heating up. It feels like a change election, and FunnyOrDie has the latest ads from the Santa wannabes who want to make Mr. C a mere 53-termer. Mack Henry is likely polling well with the Yukon Cornelius crowd: he can kill a reindeer and he vows to find Heatmiser’s volcano compound!

Watch the entire FunnyOrDie.com clip below and then vote for your new Santa.
