Microwave Christmas from AKQA

Digital agency AKQA has produced a festive season message in film for the creative industry, using 49 microwave ovens. AKQA’s greeting features the Christmas song, “Jingle Bells”, planned over a week and filmed over a day at Pinewood Studios, London.

AKQA Microwaves

Twas the night before Christmas,
when all through the house
not a creature was stirring,
not even a mouse.

Stockings were hung
by the chimney with care,
as the microwaves’ thrum
was filling the air.
