Serial Takes on Santa Claus
This week, Serial—the most downloaded podcast in history—ended its first season. But thanks to this Saturday Night Live digital short, which takes on Santa Claus, we don't have to go into withdrawal just yet. The parody is perfect, from the uncanny impersonations of Sarah Koenig, Adnan, and Cristina Gutierrez to the interview with a witness no one spoke to (in this case, a mom who left cookies out for Santa that disappeared). Ultimately, this version of Serial tries to answer the question: Could Kris Kringle really deliver presents to kids all over the globe? And if so, how?
