Steve Carell plays a bummed-out Santa Claus tired of 2020 in a new Xfinity commercial released on Thanksgiving Day.

In the clip, Carell's Santa struggles with the same issues we've all had amid the coronavirus pandemic, and he feels hopeless about doing meaningful work at the close of this very crazy year.
