In an alternate universe in which Liam Neeson would have to leave the safety of the Taken franchise to audition for a mall Santa gig, he would, as expected, lend the role a certain kind of...intensity, as this video from the Late Show with Stephen Colbert imagines. Just go with it.
"If you don't mind me saying, it's right," he argues after his first attempts are deemed too intimidating. "Do you understand what Santa's saying? He's making a list: naughty, nice. He's detailed. Single-minded. He's an eye in the sky bringing swift judgment."
😂 but true. Watch the video here.
