Duffy & Shanley having Xtranormal holidays

Rhode Island agency Duffy & Shanley used Xtranormal's text-to-movie software (one of the breakthrough gimmicks of 2009) to create this animated holiday card featuring two agency staffers droning on and on … about what they should do for their holiday card. An incessant laugh-track punctuates the conversation. Ha ha ha! The employees skewer industry trends like crowdsourcing and struggle, Gap-like, with the proper holiday greeting. It goes on so long, and with such stifling stupidity, it's kind of mesmerizing. And best of all, they didn't dress up the staff like the cast of Mad Men. So, in keeping with the spirit of the season: Ho ho ho!
