Even though it's generally accepted that Santa has a few distinguishing features that make him round and jolly, these depictions of Santa Claus offer different takes on the Christmas character. And since Santa's so elusive, any of these possibilities could represent what Father Christmas really might look like.

These depictions of Santa Claus range from Hipsterized and Zombified versions of Santa to more scandalous takes on the jolly guy — definitely not the image of Saint Nick you had in your mind as a kid.

One video captures a very spry Santa using parkour to hop from house to house to deliver all those millions of presents on Christmas Eve. As you might expect, this version of Santa Claus has lost a few pounds from all that vigorous activity.
