This Holiday Editorial Turns Christmas Tradition on Its Head

This tongue-in-cheek holiday editorial, done by Ainsley Hutchence at Sticks & Stones Agency, makes a mockery of traditional Christmas advertising.

The holidays can be a time of forced cheer and ritualized tradition. As much as we look forward to Christmas, it can be a bit tiresome to perform all of these rituals with a constant happy-go-lucky smile on our face. This editorial is dedicated to throwing those tired old routines and conventions out the window, and instead embracing a childish playfulness with an adult twist.

Models Jessie Haggie and Jon Harris bathe in a tub of ornaments, wrap themselves up in tinsel and string themselves up in lights in this humorous, light-hearted editorial. Extra cheekiness is seen in the shots where Harris holds a festive teddy bear to his crotch, insinuating that the stuffed toy is performing fellatio.
