One Facebook user in Britain recently captured a suspiciously speedy neighborhood visit by Father Christmas earlier this month.

As she wrote in the post that accompanied the popular video, Santa was atop a trailer being towed by a runaway vehicle with what was described as a broken clutch.

Over his loudspeaker, he wished the crowd a Merry Christmas and briefly explained the issue.

“We’ve got a problem with the car,” he said. “The clutch is gone.”
