The world in a few decades might be unrecognizable to many of us.
For decades, Santa has always been characterised as that big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard but a new survey has indicated that some people are in favour of rebranding the North Pole’s most famous resident.
Logo design company GraphicSprings asked 400 people for suggestions on how to ‘rebrand’ Santa to make him more modern. From these suggestions, a further 4,000 people voted for the changes that they would like to see introduced the most.
In terms of a redesign for a more modern Santa the suggestions are absolutely hideous.
Fancy seeing St. Nicholas sporting some tattoos, a trimmed beard, skinny jeans, sneakers and a hoverboard instead of a sleigh?
Yep, people genuinely want a hipster Santa. Why, well, it’s further proof that we don’t deserve nice things. They’re definitely going on the naughty list!
In case you’re wondering, those surveyed were from the UK and the US and the ages varied from 18-65.
The survey results also showed that 8.8% of people would like to see Santa wear runners, 14.7% felt that a flying car is a better mode of transport than a sleigh, and 11% felt that Santa should use a hoverboard.
Yes, we know what you’re thinking. Are these people confusing Santa with Marty McFly from Back to the Future?
Sadly, the answer is no.
In terms of the other changes that were proposed, 8.3% of those surveyed feel that Santa should go on a diet and 7.3% think that he’s in need of a new hairdo.
As for the sex of Santa Claus, more than 27% of those surveyed were in favour of rebranding Santa as a woman or as gender-neutral.
11% of respondents felt that Santa should be female, with 17% saying he should be gender neutral.
Traditionalists won out though because a commanding majority of 72% believe that Santa should still be classified as a male.
Granted, until Coca Cola intervened and rebranded Santa in the image that we now know him as, his image was very different. In fact, up until 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf.
This being said, we just can’t abide by this image of a ‘hipster Santa.’
Take a look at him.
He’s more monstrous than The Grinch.
Our modern gen has lost it’s mind and common sense. Hello woke, good by brains.
how true I say WOKE is STUPID. I know Santa Claus and HIS Wife, Ms, Santa Claus
There are always going to be those few that want it to be female, your leftists womens libbers that want to infest every aspect of our life. Then you have your mentally unstable gender confused that need to feel comfortable by saying Santa is non-binary.
Simple solution. Put them on their own islands or redistrict California or New York to where all these types can run rampant with their bizarre ways and they can knock themselves out living any way they want so the rest of decent society, your deplorables fascists, and Nazi’s as we are called can continue to live normally where Santa is a man. Also, we have both boys and girls, the way God intended not expected to accept every depravity of society that part of the country and this administration accepts.
Why does everything HAVE to be changed, just to make a small group of people happy.
What the fvck is wrong with these younger generations. Socialism has warped their brains. Just watch some YouTube videos of young kids going to college and you’ll see that they are as dumb as a box of rocks.
Omg…this is Total BS. Santa Claus is a Man. Mrs Clause is a woman his wife. I’m so tired of these new terms. Hello you’re either male or female regardless of your “sexual orientation” preference. When we pass on and only the bones is left. An anthropologist will say either male or female. No matter what surgery you had or what term was made up for a gender that don’t exist
Let everybody deal with the mythical character they want. No need to stir anger into traditionalists…..Fox News already do that. Saint Nicholas inspiration was originally a Turkish bishop and nevertheless we have him as fat, blue eye and dress in polar gear….and yes, he had no wife
Personally, I expect the Valkyries that come and take me to Valhalla when I die be dressed in lingerie.
