“The Cautionary Tale of Ebenezer Snoop”

Now that we’re nearing December, it’s round about time for the Holiday spirit to kick in (I’m used to using Thanksgiving as a marker for when I can officially start playing Christmas music, but I figure it’s about that time on this side of the pond too).

And really, what’s more indicative of the season than A Christmas Carol? I mean, besides the Christmas Ham, of course.  (Wait, it’s Turkey over here?  Huh.)

Anyways, Adidas is reigning in the Holiday season with a great short called “The Cautionary Tale of Ebenezer Snoop.”  We get to see Snoop Dogg—er, Snoop Lion, sorry—meet the Ghost of Christmas Present, David Beckham (obviously) and see how being a Scrooge is affecting the livelihood of the season.  Major party foul, Snoop.

But don’t worry, with the help of Mr. Beckham and others, including Stan Smith and Rita Ora, Snoop might just realize the error of his ways before it’s too late.

After the video you can follow a link to Adidas’ Facebook app, which will look through your FB activity and see how much of a Scrooge you might be, then run you through your own Cautionary Tale.  It’s an interesting and fun way to get amped for the holidays, and Adidas has certainly created a clever way to get us all excited.
