The magic of being impersonator of Santa Claus could not save one man dressed like Father Christmas from an unfortunate crash landing during a skydiving experience.

This event occurred in Gulfport Florida on December 2nd, 2017 when this holiday impersonator, wearing Santa’s clothes, was struggling to skydive above Tampa Bay beach in Florida.

Now, this is a sight you don’t see very often. Santa’s inglorious attempt to nail skydiving, ends up in complete failure. A surprise that leaves the surpriser surprised!

Suited up like Santa, George Krokus was planning on making a festive surprise entrance to a charity volleyball tournament in Tampa Bay by skydiving down to spectators, where he planned to drop off the elf toy to a nine-year-old girl.

While this Santa did break his leg, everyone else was otherwise unharmed, except for the Elf on a shelf doll he was attempting to deliver as a present, which also suffered a leg injury.

However, misguided by reindeer Rudolph, Krokus found himself crashing into a tree and light pole before landing on the beach. What a Clausastrophy!

The Elf is named Kristoff and is an old friend of local resident Madison Spiers, the daughter of the event organizer. She told local news that Kristoff regularly “visits her house” around holiday time, leaving notes and engaging in pranks.

Unfortunately, now both Kristoff and Krokus have a bandaged leg and won’t be able to spread the Christmas spirit this holiday season. It looks like Santa needs the reindeers after all!
