There’s something inherently creepy about mall Santas, isn’t there? Much like a clown, you just know there’s a real human being hiding behind the cheerful facade and chances are, given the messed up society we live in, that most of those jolly faux Santas are not as good and wholesome as they appear.
And yet, there those possible pedophiles and drug addicts are, getting paid to take pictures with your children on their laps, held up in high regard as if they truly are Kris Kringle himself. I don’t know about you, but that gives me a serious case of the willies….
That said, some mall Santas are a lot creepier than others. Here are just a handful of those unintentionally creepy Santas that somehow manage to be far creepier than anyone who has slapped on a Santa suit and actually gone out of their way to try and be creepy. I’m looking at you, Larry Drake.
Enjoy this chilling look at the dark side of Satan. I mean. Santa.
