Perverted stoner Paul works as a mall Santa, only to be fired after the manager finds out that he had sexually harassed two female co-workers working as his elves.

When he looks up, Paul is impaled through the eye by a falling icicle that pierces his brain, killing him instantly and sends him to hell where he belongs.
