Whistleblowing meets snow-blowing in a delightful stop-motion film trailer parodying “CITIZENFOUR.”

“Snowdin,” from Scott Miles and Alisha Brophy, tells the story of rogue elf Elvin Snowdin, who leaks Santa’s entire naughty list online. The covert operation sends the NSA, the Northpole Surveillance Agency that is, into a panic. Never before have the words “better watch out” and “he sees you when you’re sleeping” sounded so sinister.

Thanks to Miles and Brophy, this holiday season we will be dreaming not only of a white Christmas, but also for a series of Christmas spy spinoffs, including everything from “Citizen-Four Christmases” to the “December Twenty-Fifth Estate.”
