Oxygen takes its new-ish focus on true crime and mashes it up with a favorite Christmas tradition—the stop-motion Christmas special starring Santa Claus.

In this take, created with help from Brooklyn-based stop-motion studio Mosomos, Santa’s got some explaining to do after a persistent cop stops him due to super-slow driving and finds something entirely unexpected in the trunk of his sleigh.​

The Christmas campaign runs on Oxygen’s linear network as well as across its digital platforms and viewers who want to know what happens to our wayward Santa can follow @Oxygen on Instagram.
