On the eve of a historic vote at the Federal Communications Commission, Chairman Ajit Pai starred in an eccentric video that featured him dressed as Santa, wielding a lightsaber and clutching a fidget spinner to defend his contentious move to repeal net neutrality and mock the criticism against it.
In a so-called public service announcement laced with pop culture references and internet iconography, Pai listed the "7 things you can still do on the internet after net neutrality." He moved through each sarcasm-soaked segment with props and costumes.
Pai's video came just a day before the commission voted in a 3-2 party-line vote to repeal net neutrality rules set in 2015. Under Pai's new plan, internet providers would be allowed to speed up service for some apps and websites and block or slow others.

Worst part about that video is that he thinks he's soooooo funny.
In reality that came off as extremely arrogant and narcissistic. I'm embarrassed for him.
