The Brothers Streep launch Banting parody song #BanterClause.

It's the festive season and for so many years the sounds of Boney M's Christmas carols have filled the airwaves alongside the incredibly sad and lonely WHAM! classic "Last Christmas I gave you my heart but the very next day, you gave it away.."

This year, to save you from tears, I present you with a slightly different take on the traditional Christmas ditty with a festive song from Cape Town comedy band, The Brothers Streep entitled #BanterClause.

No more mince pies or cookies for Santa, he's gone full Real Meal on us! And comparing the usual pictures of jolly old Santa and the one we see in the video, it seems like Banting has done wonders for his figure.

Check it out below and spread the love so that hopefully we can drown out the neighbours playing "Feliz Navidad" on repeat.

Santa shares his new diet in his catchy Christmas single. You can download the MP3 for free here:
