Meet the newest member of Phantom’s street team…
He’s a decent bloke, not too shabby with a paste brush… and his pins look damn good in Daisy Dukes. We at Phantom are chuffed to introduce you to “Billsticker Santa”, our “cheeky” Christmas mascot.
Yep, you heard us. A Christmas collaboration between Phantom Billstickers, Ponsonby Central, and Angus Muir Design, Billsticker Santa’s been managing our Super-sized frame on Ponsonby Road all month – and as it turns out, he’s a natural at it.
According to designer Angus Muir, this was “definitely not your standard street project”.
With a 2.6 metre waistline, Santa’s Dukes (and his 20XL Phantom T-shirt) had to be hand-stitched by the hardworking Christmas elves at Angus’s workshop, and it took a four-man team two hours to wrestle him onto the roof at Ponsonby Central. We hope he hits the gym before Christmas… and lays off the mince pies.
But while we’ve been stoked to have him on our team, Billsticker Santa won’t be with us much longer – he’s got presents to deliver, and reindeer to feed!
So as we count down the days till Christmas, we’d like to wish you Meri Kirihimete, from our Whanau to yours. 2017 has been a wild ride, and we couldn’t have done it without your support!
