Find out what happens when Kris Kringle gets in the booth in "The Santa Sessions".

Santa Claus Voice OverI'd like to thank Bob Barnes for sharing this holiday video produced by Dailey and Associates.

If you can only imagine what a live voice over recording session with Santa would be like, particularly one that doesn't jive so well, you need to watch this video.

Kudos to you Bob - I'm sure jolly old elf impersonators everywhere (and others outside of the red suit) have been in this gentleman's shoes (and have felt his pain)!

    I'm laughing and crying at the same time. What a great piece. Thank you for sharing this.

    Merry Christmas,

            Hi Tim,

            Found the link via Nancy Wolfson. The video is also on YouTube so I've embedded it for everyone to see!

            I don't know if it was on YouTube last year, but thank goodness it is now :)

              This was on YouTube last year and I must have watched it 40 times and it cracked me up every time! Now I see it again this year and it has the exact same effect on me. Outrageously Funny! Thanks for sharing!

                Had to put this on LinkedIn. Hope it doesn't drain your bandwidth.
