In the future, we imagine Santa won’t be driving a sleigh pulled by reindeer. He’ll probably be delivering presents on a self-balancing scooter like a Hoverboard, naturally. And he’ll have the entire year leading up to Christmas Eve to practice keeping his balance so that he doesn’t crash into a Christmas tree like the man in this eight-second video.

A clip of a Santa riding a “Hoverboard” into a Christmas tree was uploaded Sunday by YouTube user “Rob Pugh,” who appears to be from the town Tyldesley in Manchester, England. The ending is completely predictable, of course, and we expect many tech savvy parents will have similar mishaps while putting presents under the tree before their kids wake up Christmas morning.
