As Christmas draws closer, James Corden is ready to get his “The Late Late Show” studio decorated for the holidays.
And on Thursday night’s episode, the talk show host planned to do just that, with a little help from Santa Claus himself.
But when jolly ol’ Saint Nick showed up with only a festive mug, Corden, 40, was not impressed, “A mug? Santa!” Corden exclaimed. “What’s going on? What’s this?”
“I know it’s a mug,” he continued. “I’ll be honest, I was expecting a little more Christmas spirit around here.”
That’s when Santa lost it. “Do you have any idea how long it would take to decorate this entire studio? I’m under a lot of pressure this time of year, buddy. A lot of pressure!”
Santa then went on to explain the true meaning of Christmas is what’s in our hearts. Cue the awws.
Watch the hilarious encounter above.
