Santa Prefers Pepsi While on Vacation

In this new Pepsi commercial, Santa's on vacation with Mrs. Claus and some elves in what looks to be a Club Med-like resort.

While dancing to "This Is How We Do It" with Mrs. Claus (who looks pretty good for her age), Santa takes a beverage break.

The bartender tries to give Santa an icy cold bottle of Coke. Santa disses the offering "Make it a Pepsi. I'm on vacation... I wanna have a little fuuuuunnnn...," ol' Kris Kringle says.

What do we learn from this commercial? That Santa cheats on Coke, likes the beach, and takes his elves with him everywhere he goes (we're hoping for Mrs. Claus' sake that he at least got the elves separate rooms).

Watch Santa get down, after the jump.
