Forget about the jolly man in the red suit - Lil Nas X just gave us his own version of Santa, and we're here for it!

After teasing fans with a unique advert for his track Holiday, Nas did not disappoint, releasing the video for the song on Friday.

In the music video, the artist takes over Santa's workshop. But the North Pole looks a little different here - the futuristic video sees the muso as a modern-day Santa kitted out in a shiny silver suit with matching silver beard, and a fancy hairdo.

The singer takes on many other roles in the video too, including a toy that has come to life as well as an elf.
