Website Offering Special Deal on Noel and Hits Albums

(Nashville, Tennessee...) - Look out Kardashians, the Kringles are coming to town! While the rest of the country is focused on the Powerball lottery, few people realize Santa Claus actually won the big prize, left the North Pole and moved to Hollywood. Or at least that's how it plays out in Phil Vassar's new music video for "Santa's Gone Hollywood" from his Noel Christmas album, which debuts this week.

"Man, Santa's fed up with the cold and being out of shape, and winning the lottery gave him the opportunity to change all of that," said Vassar, who wrote the song with Tim Nichols and Jeff Outlaw. "We had a blast walking the streets of LA and hanging out on the beach, and I think (director) Steve did a great job with this video."

The clip begins with Santa sending a video message to Phil commending him for being a good boy and offering to send his private jet to spend some time hanging out in Hollywood. As the music starts, Santa is getting the news from one of his elves that he won it big. 

He and Mrs. Claus, played by Debbe Dunning, best known for playing Heidi the "Tool Time" girl on the ABC sitcom "Home Improvement," pack up and head to warmer climate. Santa stars working out, dies his beard, trades in his sleigh for a Maserati and starts "rocking on the Sunset Strip." Key words like rack, nipped, tucked, lipo-sucked and Brazilian leave little to the imagination, as Mrs. Claus gets totally immersed in the Hollywood lifestyle.

Philadelphia actor Juri Muller played Santa in the video, and other guests included popular personality Ashlie Kolb, from the nationally syndicated lifestyles show, The Better Show, and author, Fantasy Football talk show host, race car driver and former Playboy Playmate Pilar Lastra, who plays Phil's date in the clip.

Fans can view the clip, which was directed by Steve Condon, now at www.PhilVassar.com, and it will begin airing on all major video outlets within the next week.
