Mastercard and MacLaren McCann Toronto turned to this claymation holiday spot to promote the credit card’s ‘Save more. Give more’ campaign, which is providing customers discounts via merchant partners this holiday season. The ad shows that Santa isn’t above giving gifts to his elves after a hardworking holiday season. Thanks to Mastercard this vertically challenged trio gets to do their best impressions of the guys from The Hangover during their very own Vegas vacation.
