If the holiday spirit hasn't hit you yet, the McDonald's Cycling Santas commercial will certainly do the trick.

Featuring a bunch of people dressed as Santa Claus biking toward a McDonald's, the McDonald's Cycling Santas video ad is less vibrant and energetic than the fast food chain's previous holiday advertisements, but it will nonetheless get you in the holiday mood. After all, it's impossible to be a Grinch while watching all theses Kris Kringles and Rudolphs pedaling furiously toward the golden arches.

Created by Leo Burnett London, with creative direction by Justin Tindall, the McDonald's Cycling Santas ad promotes McDonald's holiday menu, which includes the After Eight McFlurry, the Chicken Fiesta and a "festive pie." Stats for Pedaling Kris Kringles Trending: Older & Mild
