Parents Can Record Rudolph Eating Carrots In Their Home Thanks To Free App
Some children are very inquisitive when it comes to how Santa gets around the world and who really eats the snacks, well now you can show them exactly how it's done with footage from your own home.
Well, kind of. McDonald's has created an app where you can record a clip a reindeer coming into your house and eating the carrots left out for them by your youngsters.
Going along with their festive #ReindeerReady campaign, Maccies has launched a website called Reindeer Ready Live, a tool making it easy for the parents of curious kids to capture the live footage of Santa's stop at your home on Christmas Eve.
This app aims to help make the big day even more magical for kids and it's super easy to do.
Using the app, all you do is take a photo of the spot where the carrots have been strategically left out for Rudolph and his pals and upload it to the site.
Like magic the image is turned into a short video of one of Father Christmas' cheeky reindeer tucking into a much-needed snack - well, after flying millions of miles in one night a snack or two will be well appreciated.
In the #ReindeerReady Christmas campaign by the fast food restaurant brand an advertisement was released - it promoted families heading to McDonald's to pick up a bag of carrots to leave out for the reindeer after the reindeer were getting pretty hungry because nothing had been left out for them, only cookies and mince pies for Santa.
Eventually, St Nick got the idea to head over to McDonald's and stock up with their carrot stick bags for his flying friends.
Now the brand is offering a free bag to anyone who heads down to the restaurant on Christmas Eve - for the reindeer, of course.
The ad was hailed as one of the best Christmas adverts of the year after people's heart-strings were pulled by the sad and hungry reindeer.
The app ties up the brand's campaign nicely, showing kids the end product of investing in some carrots to leave out for the flying creatures the night before the big day.
Who says technology is ruining the festive period?
