Santa Claus gets svelte and stylish as we see him upgrade everything from his suit to his sleigh in this epic year-long transformation for the 2019 Audi RS 5 Sportback. 

Capturing the makeover is this online holiday short, New Santa, directed by Craig Gillespie of MJZ for agency M/H VCCP (formerly MUH-TAY-ZIK | HOF-FER).
