Jimmy Kimmel inserts Rob Ford into classic holiday film


ABOVE: Jimmy Kimmel inserts Toronto Mayor Rob Ford into “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.”

TORONTO – The Christmas classic, “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”, has a new mayor.

Instead of the evil Burgermeister Meisterburger, the new version features Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and his infamous admission of crack use.

Ford’s voice has been dubbed over thanks to Jimmy Kimmel.

Kimmel introduced the clip saying the original is “a little bit outdated.”

“That’s no fun. So to spice things up and to bring him into the year 2013, we took the voice of the old mayor out and replaced it with the voice of Toronto mayor Rob Ford.”

Kimmel’s recreation of the classic Christmas movie features two interview clips from Ford; the first was his admission of crack use in response to a question by Global News City Hall Reporter  Jackson Proskow and the second was his interview with a CNN reporter during which he swore in front of children.

The clip is the latest comedic creation by American late night shows, inspired by Ford since he  admitted to smoking crack cocaine.
