The Grinch and Santa Claus are spotted speeding on Tamaulipas road


In the original 1966 version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, the Grinch is introduced as bitter and hateful and despises the idea of a nearby village having a nice happy Christmas. Voiced by Boris Karloff, the Grinch disguises himself as Santa Claus, and makes his dog, Max, into a reindeer.

But in 2022, things are a bit different…

In the Mexican state of Tamaulipas, the sour character from the mind of Dr. Seuss and the protagonist of the 2018 film directed by Ron Howard, has been seen speeding in a tricycle through the streets of the city of Matamoros, Tamaulipas, which is an important border crossing point into the United States. 

This is the motorized version of the Grinch, who, believe it or not, was accompanied by his antagonist Santa Claus.
