A few weeks ago, we were introduced to Fashion Santa, a model named Paul Mason, who works at the Yorkdale Mall in Toronto, Canada. He's sexy as hell.
Sadly, people can't sit on his lap. But you can take selfies with him.
He even took a selfie with Justin Bieber!
People were pretty into him.
Well, Canada isn't the only country with a sexy Santa. Paul Mason is currently all over Mexican Facebook as Mr. Claus, a hunky Santa working for El Palacio de Hierro, one of Mexico's largest department stores.
Mason's Mr. Claus persona seems a little deeper and more brooding than Mason's Fashion Santa.
Mr. Claus is thoughtful.
But also intense.
Mexican social media is going crazy about Mr. Claus. He's got a verified Facebook page where he posts videos like this:
And on Twitter and Instagram people can't stop talking about him. They're using the hashtag #QueridoMrClaus which basically means "Darling Mr. Claus" or "Sweetheart Mr. Claus."
Mason wrote a letter to BuzzFeed Mexico, however (in beautiful cursive), saying that he doesn't want to be considered a sex symbol.
And then BuzzFeed Mexico started flirting with him in the comments.
Paul Mason is the actor behind both Canada's Fashion Santa and Mexico's Mr. Claus. An earlier version of this post stated that they were two different and distinct sexy Santas. Apparently, both Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Center and El Palacio de Hierro’s creative teams decided to hire Mason to be their super-sexy Santa Claus this year. Also, this is probably my favorite correction I've ever had to make.
