Domino's Japan is relying on Santa's trustiest flying friends to make pizza deliveries this winter season.

The company released a video of its Japanese employees training a reindeer to deliver pizzas on a red sleigh.

Staff originally tried to place the pizza boxes on the reindeer's back with no success.

The funny video shows staff monitoring the reindeer's movements using a GPS device linked to an app.

Domino's hopes the service will be running in early December in the Hokkaido area where snowfall is prevalent.

The full video is available below.
