Men dressed as Santa pummel each other in bizarre fight [VIDEO]

The costumed New York City bar crawl SantaCon was initially created to marry getting into the holiday spirit and copious amounts of alcohol. Unfortunately, when revelers have been drinking all day, things tend to get out of hand.

This year, organizers tried to put an emphasis on donating to charity and asked that participants not drink too much or be unruly.

“Santa respects the city. Santa doesn’t piss on the streets, start fights, block streets, climb on cars, or deface property,” the website for the crawl reads.

Those rules didn’t sink in for at least a few participants. In a video entitled, “Santapocolypse NYC 2013,” uploaded by Chris Lau, a couple of guys dressed as Santa sloppily punching each other on the snowy sidewalk.
