Thankfully for our entertainment, Casey Wright, founder of Modern Nativity, wondered what the nativity scene would look like if Jesus was born in 2016? I know you haven’t thought about it, neither did we. So he created the “hipster nativity set”, where we can see three guys delivering Amazon Prime gifts on Segways, Mary is making the infamous “duckface” while taking a selfie. But they are only a small part of this modern set.
We all know that all the good stuff start as a joke or as a simple exercise of imagination. So did Casey’s idea to make this hipster nativity set. He told Mashable:
“This product started at a happy hour with our friends. After a few beers, we started joking about how religions would be different if their sacred texts were set in modern times.”
“We have quickly found out that this product is very polarizing,” he added. “It’s usually, ‘This is hilarious, I need one,’ or ‘This is sacrilegious, I hope you burn in hell,’ and almost nothing in between those two extremes.”
“The product site was officially published six days ago and we’re currently selling roughly 500 sets a day.”
You can also have it for $129.99 and includes 7-inch hand-painted polyresin figurines. (scroll down for the video)
