Getting around on a sleigh pulled by reindeer is so early 19th century. Since Mrs. Claus got him a slick new smartphone last year, Santa is finally updated to the 21st century and he’s using Uber to deliver presents to all the good girls and boys. Also he was catching a lot of flack from vegans about still using animals as a mode of transportation.
Uber is teaming up with the North Pole’s biggest manufacturer of authentic Elven goods and giving their CEO, Santa, a lift as he makes his way around Cairo. Check out your Uber app between 2 PM and 6 PM on the big day and you’ll see a #SantaOnDemand button that you can use to get a private meeting with the big man in red and white.
Santa will be all yours for 15 minutes which you can spend trying to build a rapport with him for next year, getting your selfie game on, soliciting him for investment in your startup, or discussing the ethics of using elves to undercut China's manufacturing costs. Just don’t use him as a therapist and talk about all your feelings and junk, Santa hates that crap.
And if you’ve been good, Saint Nick will even be handing out gifts, courtesy of TheGiftery.com! All we want is chocolate. Or maybe a PlayStation. Santa Delivery is 50EGP for 15 mins which is a pretty good deal if you ask us.
