If you caught mommy kissing this modern version of Santa Claus, you would likely be pretty jealous.
Model Paul Mason was hired to be Christmastime spokes-Santa for Toronto's Yorkdale Mall and he may be the hottest mall St. Nick to ever exist. Mason, nicknamed "Fashion Santa," appears in several ads for the shopping center looking dapper AF.
"I’ve been modeling for 30 years. When I was attending Ryerson [University,] I was in a sociology class that was mixed with fashion students and one of them asked me to walk in a fashion show for one of their assignments," Mason said in a Q&A with Yorkdale.
"During that show, someone from the industry spotted me and liked what they saw. One month later, I was on the runway and I’ve never looked back."
Mason has been taking selfies with fans who visit him at Yorkdale Mall and posting them on Instagram with the hashtag #YorkdaleFashionSanta, with $1 donations for each snap going to SickKids Hospital.
Mason also playfully remarked to Out that he says he's "Santa's younger brother — the thinner version." Whichever member of the Kringle family he actually is, we'd love it if he would slip his number under our tree. ???
