As sun deprived agency folk re-emerge from its dimly lit tech dungeons and clients vacate its ivory towers for the white sands of Omaha, Motion Sickness isn’t taking any risks.
In a year ravaged by uncertainty, cancelled shoots and lackluster Zoom calls, creative agency Motion Sickness has baked up something to get out of bed for.
For decades, Christmas hopefuls have lured Santa into their homes with milk and cookies. A new normal of relentless sanitising, mask wearing and generalized droplet anxiety left this Xmas tradition in peril.
With the long tail of delta wrapping itself around everything in its path, the preservation of a wholesome 2021 Christmas was paramount.
Says Will Macdonald, Motion Sickness: “Given the events of the past year, it’s understandable that people might feel apprehensive about welcoming strangers back into their homes, let alone a paunch-bellied old man down their chimneys. With this in mind, we wanted to ensure Santa’s sack contains nil but joy.”
Contained within the box is a artisan biscuit and a directive for Saint Nick to follow Covid protocol. The scannable QR cookie not only ensures that people can Santa safely this year, but each box also represents a $40 donation to the Auckland Foundation COVID-19 Community Response Fund.
Says Sam Stuchbury, chief christmas officer (CCO), Motion Sickness: “Let us be your Bloomfield as you sleep peacefully through the night, before Santa fills your stocking with everything you ever wished for.”
