Argos Christmas Aliens

UK online store Argos has brought in a family of blue aliens to give British Christmas shoppers a bit of perspective on their stress levels. Having recently arrived from their far-off and Argos-less planet, they are quickly finding their feet and are most excited about all the cool stuff available for sale. The campaign provides an online connection with the aliens on the Argos Facebook page.
