Given the choice, I would rather that Santa gave me coal instead of colon. Coal isn't as smelly and only slightly more messy. Plus, to "put colon in your stocking" is laced with way more innuendo than I'm comfortable with.
Apple's newest iPhone 4S commercial milks the holiday spirit by having Santa use Siri as his personal spirit, asking it to check his naughty or nice list and for directions to the next house (apparently he skips over all of southeastern Washington and northeastern Oregon - naughty Northwesterners!)
This isn't the first time that Apple has tapped into seasonal feels for its holiday advertising. Last year's iPhone 4 ad also featured Santa (or someone dressed as him) while highlighting its FaceTime feature.
