Meet Liam Neeson, Mall Santa

He sees you when you're sleeping.

“He’s an eye in the sky bringing swift judgement.”

Those aren’t the words we would have chosen to describe Santa Claus, but we’re not arguing with Liam Neeson.

Everyone’s favorite vengeful father auditioned to be a Mall Santa on Friday’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Judge for yourself, but we’re getting more Krampus, less Kringle. Neeson is obviously channeling Taken here, but despite the grubby Santa suit and bad lighting, he can’t fool us. We all know the true yuletide Love Actually Liam.

But there’s one part everyone can agree on:

“And let me tell you something about that reindeer that ran over grandma,” says Neeson. “I will look for him, I will find him and I will kill him.”

If he promises to kill that song, too, he’s got the job.
