Ok, Apple has a thing for Santa Clause and FaceTime. They launched a new iPhone 4 commercial to promote FaceTime with a dad dressed up like Santa, and now they have put FaceTime Santas in the Apple Stores. They previously installed iPad Snow Globes to get people and customers ready for the Apple Christmas season; now it's time for Santa to take the spot and FaceTime with his elves at the Apple Store.
Check out the video below. I usually don't like mannequins, and that smiling Santa with an iPhone 4 kind of creeps me out.[via TiPB]
