Gritty Wrapping Presents Will Get You Hyped for the Holidays
He’s actually, actually horrible at making these presents look good, although.
Ah, Philly: The place, when the vacations roll round, we head to the Christmas Village, get away our jawnaments, and — now — watch our beloved Gritty wrap some presents.
That’s proper. The Philadelphia Flyers have created and launched a gorgeous video of our favourite mascot wrapping some presents, and it’s getting us completely hyped for the vacations.
Because of the clip, we really feel like we discovered a lot about Gritty in simply 30 seconds.
Like, he kind of reminds us of the Grinch when he’s all dressed up in vacation garb. (Positive, he’s not inexperienced, however did you see the best way these creepy, lengthy, skinny fingers tapped towards the tip? Very Grinch-like.)
Plus, Gritty is completely terrible at wrapping Christmas presents. Actually. He jogs my memory of the cat I grew up with that used to shred all of the paper. (He did an incredible job of inserting that sweet cane on the tree, although.)
Additionally: We wish some Gritty-decorated, Flyers-themed gingerbread cookies proper about now.
Anyway, if this video made you extraordinarily excited for each the vacations and the remainder of the Flyers season, then we’ve bought some excellent news for you: Now you can get your fingers on some official Gritty ornaments.
The Flyers are promoting their Santa Sacks Vacation Present Packages, and this yr, they’ll embody collectible Gritty ornaments. They may be extra appropriate for true Flyers followers, although: They’ll price you the large bucks, since they arrive with packages that embody tickets to Flyers and Wings video games. They begin at $170 — right here’s extra data.
Anyway, we’re wanting ahead to seeing extra of holiday-themed Gritty (and Gritty Claus) as Thanksgiving nears.
Joyful 50th Birthday to Keith Jones!
