It was 20 years ago on Christmas Eve when Santa and M&M’s beloved mascots, Red and Yellow, encountered each other for one of the most memorable holiday commercials of all time.

Both in complete shock of each others existence, Santa and Red faint to the floor leaving Yellow standing with a bowl of M&M’s, uttering the famous line, “Uh… Santa?”

The original ad aired in 1996 and has continued to air every year since then.

20 years later, we finally find out how that night ended. “Faint 2: A Very Yellow Sequel” as it’s titled on the company’s YouTube page, features clumsy Yellow taking on the duties of delivering Christmas gifts for Santa.

“We want to bring everyone together with M&M’S once again this holiday season by highlighting the true meaning of Christmas for a new generation of fans,” Michael Magee, VP Growth Acceleration, Mars, Inc. told People.

The commercial will debut during the annual Christmas Tree lighting at Rockefeller Center in New York, but you can watch it right now.
