Because humans will buy anything (and I mean ANYTHING), a company called Modern Nativity has come up with a “hipster nativity set” with which to decorate your third-floor walkup in Greenpoint for the holidays. It features such blank stare-inducing features as the three wise men bearing Amazon Prime boxes whilst riding Segways, Joseph with a man-bun taking a selfie with a Starbucks-carrying Mary over the Baby Jesus, and a solar-powered manger. I’m honestly surprised that the Baby Jesus isn’t being portrayed by a figurine of Lena Dunham in an ill-fitting adult baby play onesie.
Mashable has the backstory.
“This product started (as all good products do) at a happy hour with our friends,” founder Casey Wright told Mashable in an email. “After a few beers, we started joking about how religions would be different if their sacred texts were set in modern times.”
Not to knock anyone’s hustle (#getmoneybitch), but you could have just kept drinking and passed out.
