COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) — A graphic design company conducted a survey on re-branding Santa to make him more modern.
Respondents participating in GraphicSprings survey said they would modernize Santa by ditching his iconic suit with skinny jeans, tattoos, a hoverboard and a flying car. So as you can see, they have begun by completely dismantling what Santa has been for years and years. The story of Ol Saint nick is about to take a beating.
Twenty-seven percent of respondents said they would prefer Santa to be either a woman or gender neutral if he had to be re branded. My first question would be WHY? Why do you feel the need to change Santa's identity? What has happened in your life where the father figure of a short, fat, heavy set man makes you shudder with fear? Twenty-one percent of people thought Santa should put down the cookies and get on a diet. Again, why? He only get cookies one night out of the year!
GraphicSprings asked 400 people between the ages of 18 and 25, to provide suggestions on how they would re brand Santa. Normally I would give 18 to 25 year olds much more credit for being bright and understanding not only the image of Santa but what he stands for. Obviously I was wrong. Looks like the 18 to 25 year olds in this survey are morons. Merry Christmas! And LEAVE SANTA ALONE!
Nope...No Skinny Santas aloud!
