The next time a kid asks you how Santa makes it to everyone’s houses in one night, just tell him or her, "parkour."
Utah’s own Ronnie Shalvis brings us that take on old St. Nick in a new video posted to YouTube Wednesday. The video shows Shalvis — dressed as Santa — jumping, spinning and flipping from houses, over fires and generally through the concrete jungle.
Shalvis, 23, lives in South Jordan and has called several cities along the Wasatch Front home. According to his website, he also has done stunts on a variety of projects in TV and film.
As of Wednesday, Shalvis’ Santa video was exploding online. Wednesday afternoon it had 80,000 views but by midnight it had picked up another 20,000.
You may also remember Shalvis from his Mario Bros. video earlier this year. That video — which had 7.8 million views as of this week — was set in Salt Lake City and produced by a group in Provo.
