He's one of the most popular and successful actors to have ever played James Bond.

But Daniel Craig may now be quaking in his designer Tom Ford suit at being usurped as 007 by a considerably older pretender who fancies himself as the super spy.

In a spoof trailer for 'Snowfall' made by YouTube's Official Comedy channel, a cheeky Santa Claus replaces James Bond in several key scenes.

Instead of a gun, Santa uses a candy cane as his lethal weapon of choice, and strolls out in front of a black background for the iconic end credit sequenc.

MI6 are thrown into a panic, with Judi Dench's M claiming: "A week before Christmas, he stole the drive with the naughty and nice data across the globe."

In Skyfall, Bond pursues infamous cyber terrorist Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem) who has the means to hack into M's computer and cause havoc and terror at MI6.

Santa appears to be a mysterious customer, prompting a worried M to look up his profile and known aliases on the intelligence service database.

She discovers that Santa is also include Kris Kringle, St Nick and Slay Man, but the plot thickens and Santa is taken into meet Ralph Fiennes' character Garath Malloy for a briefing.

Instead of the North Pole, Santa is thrown into the slightly warmer climes of the M16 headquarters in London, along with Istanbul, Shanghai, and Scotland.

Much like 007 himself, Santa has an eye for the ladies in Snowfall, with Bond Girl Sévérine (Berenice Marlohe) unable to escape the bearded one's attention.

He accosts her in a bar, and cheekily recalls "sliding down your chimney into your fireplace. It was quite a tight squeeze."

And in an echo of Bond actors of old, Santa mysteriously speaks with a Sean Connery-esque drawl.

But the north pole native keeps being distracted from delivering presents to the world's children.He has a clandestine meeting with Q (Ben Whishaw) in a museum, where he asks him: "Aren't you the oaf who used to work in the candy cane department?"
