Hate to burst your bubble, but this is actually an old (eight years old, I think?) promo "faux commercial" from the Mexican version of "Six Feet Under" (aka "A Dos Metros Bajo Tierra", which is set in Tijuana.) At about the :50 mark you can pretty much see the entire cast: the guy in the bowling shirt is the "Nate" character; behind him (in the baseball cap) corresponds to the ghost of his father (Nathaniel.) The girl in the coffin (wearing the "Sexy Feliz Navidad" outfit) is the Mexican "Claire" character (the scriptwriters changed her from being a sullen teenaged photographer into a Lucha Libre "Ring Girl") In the Mexican version of the show, they eliminated the gay brother (David) in favor of "Octavio", the fat guy in the Santa outfit (he's a neer-do-well drunkard / comic relief character, kinda like "Grady" or "Bubba" in Sanford and Son.) The two younger boys in the back row are flunkies (they walk around Tijuana with sandwich signs, advertizing "Funeraria Lopez" and getting into mischief.) The mother in the show is almost never seen, since she spends most of her time in church, lighting candles and praying to the saints. Federico Diaz' character (not shown in the clip) was changed into an armadillo that rather inexplicably shows up at inopportune moments, wearing a sarape and tiny sombrero, mugging for the camera (rather like Norman Fell used to do in "Three's Company")...
