Santa’s… to sexy for his hat…


It's Santa Claus--L.A. style...

At the Beverly Center mall in L.A., shoppers won't find a jolly old bearded elf Fri-Sun nights.  instead they will find a 6-foot-1, 185-pound "Hunky Santa" played by Eli Wilhide. 

Shoppers who sit on this Santa's lap can get nutrition and exercise tips, or advice on what to get the wife or girlfriend.  (My advice would be not to sit in some hunk's lap while shopping for your wife or girlfriend...)

From an article by By Laura T. Coffey at the Today Show:  He’s “gorgeous,” said one woman who recently posed for a photo on his lap. “Illegally gorgeous.”

QUESTION:  Did you sit on Santa's lap this year?
