Santa Claus Meets Jabba the Hutt in Retailer's Horrifying In-Store Holiday Display Family photos at Betabrand!

Santa-themed retail displays are everywhere at this time of year, but sometimes you run across one that truly captures the mood of the season—like this sprawled-out, morbidly obese Kris Kringle reportedly modeled after Jabba the Hutt.

Clothing retailer Betabrand recently put the disturbingly swollen and pimpled St. Nick, designed by artist Cianna Valley, on display in a San Francisco storefront—as a statement on the excess of holiday festivity and consumerism. Or something along those lines. Whatever the intent, it seems to be a hit photo backdrop for Betabrand customers.
