We found this piece of footage via gizmodo.com and I laughed so hard that I had to draw your attention to it.

In the video, Santa tried to rappel down the sign of a local Texas mall to bring to cheer to all the kids watching. Of course, things go wrong and his beard gets caught up in the rappelling gear causing him to get stuck 30 feet from the ground.

Don't worry; those brave, brave firemen took time off from their calendar photo shoot to save Santa with a ladder.

Reports are saying it was a very classy event.
