In the recent controversy circulating the ethical practices of NSA surveillance, non profit organization ACLU has created an anti-surveillance holiday video to warn the public of the widespread global surveillance.

The video is an anti-surveillance, anti-spy short clip. Featuring a remake of a Christmas classic, the song is titled 'The NSA Is Coming To Town,' and the video features three Santa Claus figures walking around the streets of New York City wearing dark sunglasses, taking snapshots of pedestrians but instead checks their phone and takes pictures of strangers.

The video has been created as part of a campaign to gaining more signatures for a petition against government surveillance and spying. Stats for Anti-Surveillance Christmas Videos Trending: Older & Warm
