This didn't go as planned.

Watch as Santa Claus arrives on land via a boat, then suddenly stumbles into the water as the boat docks on the beach.

Apparently, Santa didn't take into consideration the abrupt stop by the boat and when he went to get off the boat he fell into the water!

Santa didn't seem to be inured here, but I just hope his landing is much smoother in a few weeks.

We don't need Santa falling off a roof on Christmas Eve.
