A young boy decided he would try and catch Santa Claus on video, so he set up a hidden camera.

Little did the boy know, his parents knew about the camera.

The boy, identified in the video as 7-year-old Evan, watched the recording the following day.

Several minutes into watching the recording, bells can be heard and Evan’s face lights up with joy.

“Santa Claus” appears and eats some milk and cookies before magically making presents appear.

The video concludes with the Santa spotting the hidden camera and, with a snap of his fingers, turning it off.

“I hope he doesn’t put us on the naughty list,” Evan says.

The video has been viewed on YouTube around 3,000 times on Friday afternoon.
