BMW makes sure to put "Christmas" back in the holiday greetings with this hilarious ad. [Video inside]

While religious fairness concerns keep many companies from wishing a Merry Christmas and instead sticking with "Happy holidays!," the good folks at BMW very much stuck with Christmas tradition with their latest marketing effort. Sort of.

Hoping to come up with a creative way to put the blisteringly fast all-new M5 sport sedan to good use while spreading holiday cheer, BMW decided to put illustrator Gavin Patterson and BMW precision driver Urs Inauen in an M5 with a special task: create the fastest Christmas card in the world.

While there might be a Christmas card out there traveling by airplane at a faster speed than this M5 managed, considering the card was created at speed, we'll let this one slide and tip our hat to BMW. Well done - and Merry Christmas!
