Just in time for Christmas, KBSP Canada poses the question What if other brands got to Santa before Coke did? What would the iconic bearded jolly fat guy in red suit look like? To find out, they brought on Montreal-based illustrator Sharif Tarabay to try on some different looks for other brands. The catch of course is that these images are without logos since KBSP isn't affiliated with them. Still it's not hard to figure out what the one with the Swedish flag is, or the naked santa with the sign Fir not Fur is. To check out the others, go to Brands of Santa. Although in truth I found the video way more entertaining. I think it's because Tarabay's accent reminds me of my Montreal days.
