Steve Carell is saving Christmas in a new holiday commercial.

The beloved Office actor takes on his jolliest role to date as Santa Claus in Comcast's new ad, which premiered on Thanksgiving Day.

The commercial follows Carell as a conflicted Santa, who, amid the chaos of 2020, has accepted that the "usual" Christmas gifts aren't going to cut it this year. Thus, he enlists the help of his loyal elves to adapt to the times — through trial and error, of course — as Santa and Mrs. Claus navigate the trials of video chatting and drone delivery as Dec. 25 approaches.

In the end, Santa holds a video conference with the elves while he's flying in his sleigh. "This year has been harder than ever. And yet, somehow, you all found a way to pull it off. You reminded us it's not about the toys or the ornaments, it's about the little things," he says, before his helpers chime in with an important note: "You're on mute."
