"I had so much fun writing this with Jason Reeves and Kara DioGuardi. It’s very tongue-in-cheek and funny. It’s talking about ‘Oh, I had too much to drink because Rudolph’s nose is turning green,’ or ‘Santa says I look naughty, but he’s sure that I’m nice.’ It’s kind of like I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause – it’s just on the verge of being a little ‘out there.'
“We thought it’d be good to have a funny song – you know, Santa rolls up on a surfboard and hands you a present, and when he’s done handing out gifts, he wants to hit some waves. It’s very playful and silly.
“The video was fun to shoot. I’m dancing around on the beach with elves, and Santa Clause is surfing. It totally fits the song.”
