‘Tis the season, folks, and while the stress of the holidays can turn just about anyone into a big pile of figgy pudding, it’s the little things that remind us that it’s all going to be just fine. Take this short video from Ford. Playing off the monstrously popular Gymkhana series coming out of Jedi Master Ken Block, also known as Hoon Skywalker, Snowkhana mimics the crazy stunts that attracted millions of YouTube views by miniaturizing them down to stop motion animation with toys. Cheeky, eh?

Featuring the antics of a little white Fiesta rally car driven by none other than “Mental Block," this third installment of the series is an epic tale that leads the viewer through paper and cardboard towns filled with plastic figurines from yesteryear. Keep your eyes peeled for an all-Ford drift-off, a storm trooper rocking a low rider on hydraulics, jingle bell soccer, a self-conscious Santa Claus, and Buzz Lightyear Van Damme. Oh yeah, and plenty of cotton ball smoke from all four corners.

Just like the Gymkhana series, each new installment of Snowkhana gets more and more detailed. The settings, the plot, the emotion - it’s all just a bit more complex. We also like the fact that Ford is paying someone to make these videos. Hey Pixar, eat your heart out!

If you’re feeling a little run down, take a few minutes to relax and hit play.

Check out the latest Gymkhana video after the jump.
