Christmas 2018 Lookback
Seasonal Stunts

Christmas seems to inspire imaginative stunts every year. How about this one? Fenwicks’ Christmas windows are tourist attractions these days, and a gargantuan number of photos are taken of them every day. What did Greggs do for one of their branches across the street of one Fenwicks branch? Only lit up their logo and reversed it so that it reflected perfectly in the reflection of the windows that appeared in all those tourist photos!

Virgin Rail had a great little stunt lined up for the whole length of the London to Glasgow line: each train platform along the way had a portion of the script to It’s A Wonderful Life, and if you stopped off at each station you’d be able to read the script to the whole movie. Your overall journey time may be a little longer than anticipated if you did that, though.

We love live TV - it’s sad that there aren’t many live entertainment shows these days, but Lee Mack decided to take the gamble of having 2018’s Not Going Out Christmas Special as a live broadcast. The show had an additional energy about it when doing so, and all in all he pulled it off.

Getting tired of your Christmas parcels going astray as shopping continues to move to online stores? Over in America, a NASA engineer decided to get his own back by booby-trapping an Apple parcel with a motorised glitter bomb and stink bomb, whilst also loading it up with webcams to capture the experience. Let’s see how the perps reacted to a little karma...

Cesar dog food makers decided that what our canine friends needed was their own range of Christmas jumpers, and came up with a set of designs that were chosen based on the reactions of a set of pooches. Sadly they weren’t for general sale, but they became prizes in a Christmas competition.

Taskmaster creator and overall nice guy Alex Horne decided to run a Twitter version of Taskmaster throughout December. During #Taskendar a task would be set to all his followers, and the best ones got points. It was such a fun follow! Apparently he was filming tasks for the next Taskmaster series at the same time as running this, so you could tell that this was a labour of love for him. God bless Little Alex Horne...
