With all of the bad news coming out of Paris lately it's nice to have a good story to tell. Even better when it involves Santa ... On a motorcycle.

As this festive Paris resident was making his way down the street on his bright red motorcycle he spotted a pedestrian being struck by a driver at an intersection. The driver of the car simply motored on as if nothing had happened.

What happened next is worthy of a James Bond opening sequence as the motorcyclist chases down the hit and run driver, repeatedly getting them to stop only to see them speed off again.

 

 

Eventually the motorcycle riding Santa gets the attention of a pair of Paris motorcycle police officers who join in on the chase. The driver of the car still doesn't want to stop but is eventually apprehended.

The whole chase takes about three and a half minutes but it's pretty amazing how well Santa handles his ride and how reluctant the hit and run driver is to stop.
